4gen

An interactive multispeaker sound installation which uses activity sensors to generate soundscapes. The activity as tracked by the webcam guides the system through several 'stages of intensity' in the soundscape.

The activity is tracked by comparing videoframes using Processing. The data is then sent to Puredata which synthesizes the dreamy dark soundscape. The soundscape is played back over 4 speakers allowing movement in a certain area to be reflected in the soundscape.

The installation was setup at the entrace of the University of the Arts Utrecht.
