Sound Sculpture (Pulsing)

Consists of 12 steel plates suspended and paired with hanging, muted vibration motors. Four infrared proximity sensors read audience movements and effect vibration patterns and rates. Software programmed in Arduino/C++.

Performance Interface (Stellar Remnants)

Consists of a main control box with connections for two foot pedals (provided), and IR sensor (provided with stand), and USB output.

The performer uses hand motions as directed in the score with the IR sensor. The performer's proximity to the sensor affects audio playback within a "scene" of the piece. Foot pedals control scene number and calibration of sensor data. Performance software created in Max/MSP.
