Sound Sculpture by Masary Studios
On display Nov. 9–18
Sound Sculpture is an interactive sound and light instrument comprising 25 location-aware blocks. Visitors move the blocks — which are essentially musical nodes that represents notes in pitch, harmony and time — to create musical compositions. The cubes report their coordinates to the controlling computer, which triggers each cube to light up and emit sound.
It is like walking onto a sheet of printed music, picking up the notes and moving them around, thereby changing pitch, rhythm, melody and harmony. In this way, participants are creating physical and sonic structures collectively and simultaneously.
