Swamp orchestra is an interactive sound installation that creates a specific sound ecosystem and explores the realm of natural and artificial.

The installation is made of 16 light sensitive sound modules, where each module responds to a flashlight and the sound varies from the quantity of the light.

These small modules make sound like many biological organisms, such as frogs, birds or insects. And like most of them, they need light to exist and to sing to their highest potential. They have certain patterns and repetitive processes which can be altered by external influence of the light.

New media art is an art genre that encompasses artworks created with new media technologies, including digital art, computer graphics, computer animation, virtual art, Internet art, interactive art technologies, computer robotics, and art as biotechnology. The term differentiates itself by its resulting cultural objects, which can be seen in opposition to those deriving from old media arts (i.e. traditional painting, sculpture, etc.) This concern with medium is a key feature of much contemporary art and indeed many art schools now offer a major in "New Genres" or "New Media".

New Media concerns are often derived from the telecommunications, mass media and digital modes of delivery the artworks involve, with practices ranging from conceptual to virtual art, performance to installation.
