Sound circuits played by video projection

Craft & Design Music Technology

Bruno Mathez and Mike Blow’s art installation, PHOTOPHONICS, presents an interesting relationship between light-controlled oscillators and video projection –

PHOTOPHONICS is the first result of Bruno’s 3d video-projection mapping experiments. It is a ‘dispersed instrument’ with a number of electronic oscillators created by Mike, positioned on architectural elements of the dark performance space. Each one emits sound in direct response to light. A fascinating visual score is played, transforming the space into an hypnotic audiovisual experience.

Nice fresh approach to some familiar elements here – I can imagine further evolutions growing quite dense and complex. [via Synthtopia]
