#MovableParty Workshop 2 was about the design of an interactive system. We placed sensors of various types on the handlebars of one of the bikes with a hub motor. Our workshop leader Steven Kemper mapped the pressure sensor data through Max MSP to demonstrate different effects (parameters of low-pass filter) on a song. The Hall Effect sensor was used to set the tempo of the audio playback. Jack Moreau is our DJ on the handlebars for this round! This workshop took place at Occidental College's Brown LearnLab. Participants included students from Occidental College and members of The Bike Oven.
Movable Party is a bike-powered celebration of the vibrancy and safety of life in public spaces. Our first performance, an interactive DJ event, will coincide with CicLAvia on April 21, 2013. It will take place in MacArthur Park along the CicLAvia route. Movable Party is the first project conceived, designed, and implemented by Movable Parts, an ad hoc group of friends and collaborators with a shared mission to deploy creative practices to re-imagine the streets and public spaces in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area.
