Teaser for the upcoming Electronic Beats exhibition in Budapest, 16th-18th October 2015
“Floating Sounds” is an interactive sound installation designed and programmed by flora&faunavisions in collaboration with Berlin-based electronic music artist Julian Ganzer for the sound design.
The immersive installation is inspired by the art of sampling, synaesthesia and the rich history of electronic music. Its visual language corresponds to the same leitmotif – an analogue, haptic language influenced by artists of the early 20th century, such as pioneering animator Oskar Fischinger and painter Wassily Kandinsky who had researched the connection between sound and imagery.
A layered projection on multiple semi-transparent surfaces made “Floating Sounds” a walkable audio-visual experience. Each visual element of the installation corresponded to a musical instrument and rhythm. The media historic element of punch cards, integral to the first automated machinery and data processing systems, served as transmission medium. Using vvvv (a hybrid visual/textual live-programming environment) patterns designed on the punch cards by the visitors, triggered the installation creating an individual and poetic experience of sounds floating in the dark.
