In the "Rumentario autoedule" installation the Rumentarium electro-mechanical ensemble, made up of 24 acoustic generators, is coupled with audio analysis capabilities. Two mics capture the surrounding soundscape.
Retrieved pitch and loudness profiles are used to drive the orchestra. As the soundscape around is mostly (even if not only) made up of the same rumentarium, the latter reacts to itself.
Installed at Conservatorio G. Verdi, Como, for Elettrosensi 2012 on 19/01/2012.
Video shootings by Davide Bellardita (thanks!).
