Music for Walking People

This is a 5 minute recording of the interactive music system I created during the Poitiers residency for Interac Wearing (Experientiae Electricae). The music is based on recordings I made in Tiruvannemalai, India as well as various sounds, synthesizers, bits and pieces, which are controlled and triggered in many ways by the visitor’s walking around.

Visitors are wearing Interac Wearing’s costumes which contain sensors and communicate amongst each other wirelessly. As the visitors move around outside (pictures), I use the data gathered from their collective behavior to control and generate various musical structures, an example of which can be heard right here:
