Urban Echo is an ongoing series of interactive sound and video installations. The project has appeared in many forms ranging from intimate outdoor video sculptures to large interactive public façades. Urban Echo aims to collect and creatively represent the thoughts and imaginings of city-dwellers.
In each installation, participants send their thoughts and questions via SMS and voicemail. The responses are then projected and added to a dynamic spatialized audio composition.
This version was installed at Huset i Magstræde in Copenhagen, Denmark for the International Computer Music Festival in late August, 2007. It was completed in collaboration with composer J. Anthony Allen janthonyallen.com.
