Color a Sound

A demo/walkthrough of my installation entitled 'Color a Sound' which was set up at RPI's West Hall Gallery 111 for the month of April 2010.

The interaction is meant to be very simple and playful, hence the major scale. It would be much more difficult for someone to walk up and have fun with a chromatic scale. Like any instrument, one would have to spend a lot of time to make a composition worth listening to and this is just a demo of the sonic abilities/responsiveness.

There are two previous videos of when I first developed this from a couple years ago as well, but they only show the point of view of the analysis camera and not the device itself. If you're curious, videos are available here:

Would love to install this again...and if anyone wants the ugly max patch you can get it here: ..I'll hopefully clean it up soon

Check out Cedric Paquette's video where he uses a modified version of my code for his own composition:
