Intended as a graphical score from which live musicians can improvise. It's part of a project with artist, Nigel Helyer, the University of Tasmania Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies and the Tasmanian Conservatorium of Music. sonicobjects.com/index.php/projects/more/bio_logging/
The data used was recorded using devices attached to Antarctic elephant seals. Each dive goes down as deep as 2.3Km. The Seals help us gather information about kinds of water masses, where the seals go and feed and many other things that help us understand and protect the remarkable creatures that live in the Antarctic.
made using TouchDesigner realtime 3D software. The data used includes latitude, longitude, ocean temperature and salinity. The data set is slowly revolving as a 3D object but the soft drop-shadows behind the objects and the slightly paper-ish background flatten them. I'm trying to get a tug-of-war going between whether we want to see it as 2D or 3D.
In the recent concerts done with this data set, more saturated colours were used against a black background. This was to have more effect with a wimpy back-projection. This one here is more what I'd like to see if the screen was huge and the projector was perfect etc.
