4Dmix3

I was commissioned by by La Societe des Arts Technologiques [SAT] in Montreal to work as artist and interactive designer with the TOT immersive group on the isntallation 4Dmix3. The piece uses a ceiling-mounted camera to track multiple participants, using their movements to control mirrored avatars in a virtual world. The avatars can be led through a collection of phase-locked sound sources, allowing the users to discover hidden sonic material in the scene. A looping audio spooler records all of the sounds encountered, allowing users to create personal remixes of the sonic material. When a user comes to the front of the space (face-to-face with his or her avatar), they hear the result of their mix.
