Why? We often experience music performances as spatially distanced events happening in front of us. Could we design alternatives to those conventional configurations, and provide a more immersive and insightful experience of music?
What? SoundScope is an imaginary space offering a synaesthetic experience of music to the audience. This mathematical and emotional translation aims at providing the visitors with an intuitive spatial insight into music.
How? The installation translates music into an immersive landscape of lights in motion. It uses multiple projections onto translucent materials alongside surround sound technologies to create an augmented 3D environment responding to music. The amplitude, frequency and duration of each note is translated into a unique pattern in motion.
