Wellenbad – Sennheiser & Art Basel

Designed for Sennheiser and Art Basel Future Artist Audio Program.

Creating an artificial eco system with sound and light and referencing to natures constant changing patterns. This enables the viewer to see the intersection between sound, light and water, which is experienced through an intimate relationship between oneself and the environment of the installation. Modular Synthesizers can accomplish theses complexities, because of their capability of having infinite variations of patches within the system. The modules within the synthesizer system communicate with each other, which can create nature like environments through feedback loops. The feedback loop involves light, sensors and motors, because they feed information into each other similar to how natural eco systems function.

PANTA RHEI wird um modulare Synthesizer erweitert. Sensoren wandeln dabei das reflektierte Licht in Soundscapes um. Wellenbewegungen werden abgetastet und erzeugen Steuerspannungen die immer wieder neue Sounds und Rhythmen entstehen lassen. Der Sound beeinflusst im Gegenzug ebenfalls die Charakteristik der Wellen, ihrer Brechung und Reflektion u.a. mit Solenoiden und Servormotoren.
Ein Feedback loop wie in der Natur – ein sich immer wieder neu erfindendes Öko-System.
