The subject of this video is a prototipe of an interactive A/V system working with the feedback between sound and light.
Some soundfiles of scraped and hammered stones are modulate by means of light sensors placed on my laptop screen; the electric signals of these sensors are converted into numbers by Arduino, and those are employed to control sound's parameters through Pure Data.
On the other hand, each sound's evelop influence the light's intensity of each object on the screen. These objects are digital simulations of ancient seals in possession of the MAP (Museum of Primary Art) (here you can see them : web.mac.com/tribaleglobale.mac/iweb/aborigena/sigilli.html).
My aim was to create a continuos oscillation/interaction between sound and light, analog and digital systems, ancient utensils and contemporary tools and instruments.
I developed this project on MAP committee, and my first performance was on the 5th March 2010 at the British Museum's Stevenson Theatre, for the MAP's inaugural conference.
