Resonate

2000-2005
(custom software)

Resonate is a real-time audio-visual installation that uses the viewers body movement to create live music and video. Using computer vision, a users presence and physical movement is interpreted into midi-based musical notes and layered audio samples. The artwork strives to create a playful instantaneous and continuous feedback loop between the user and the system.

The video image displayed is a melting time-lapse, shadow-reflection of the viewers movement. Small samples of the users interaction are captured and recorded during periods of in-activity as a way to lure new viewers in. Resonate continues to be revised as the technology changes.
