live sound visual installation created using processing.org framework. This installation is inspired by John Cage's "Four minutes Thirty Three Seconds" piece which expanded the view how people perceive music.

The project was presented on a screen during an open day at UCLan, so people visiting studios could interact with it. The main idea behind this project is that there is no silence, unless it's void. So I wanted visualise the noise and all the sounds around us and communicate about them to the person in the area of this installation. In the video the installation shows us the words from an interview with Cage about sounds and silence. I decided that this communicates clearly what I wanted to say, and I pushed his idea even further - using his own words. The second important feature of the installation is that it can be played anywhere, as long as we have an access to a power source and a projector. So I made it easy for myself, using processing.org, to change the visuals and content of the text for the installation, so by changing the environment it can be adjusted accordingly. For example, I could change easily the words to ones related to the office noise, like: a printer, a fan, gust of wind, etc. and place the installation in the office environment.
