Murmur

Since September 2014 I’ve been responsible for the media art for Aakash Odedra´s Murmur performance, which explores how the misconceptions of dyslexia can be revealed through visual design, light, sound, movement.

Fairy Teller

The Fairy Teller project was developed within 24 hours for the Music Hack Day Barcelona contest. The software analyses different characteristics from a storyteller speaking through a microphone input, and then uses them to automagically generate a suitable real-time music background (thanks to Pure Data synthesis) and soundscape (thanks to Freesound.org content).

L’Oracle du Papillon

Ars Electronica Solutions played a major role in conceiving, planning and implementing the interactive exhibition L’Oracle du papillon“. I was one of the main developers in two of the installations (GeoPulse and the Cube).

ME-DEL World

Ars Electronica Solutions has created a series of installations for MED-EL World that are designed to enable visitors to experience the individual implant systems—how they function and their areas of application—as well as the company’s history and mission. My role was to implement the physical interface for the pioneers installation.

Neurospaces

Neurospaces

The composition “Neurospaces” by Timothy Schmele is a musical work based on medical brain data from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), using a hemispherical 3D audio system to create an audible image of the brain activity in its exact spatial correspondence. I collaborated with creative assistance and developed the brain data interface.

Hearing View

“HEARING VIEW, Rheinau” opened at the oldest Psychiatric Clinic in Switzerland. The installation conceived by O+A creates a field of harmonic sound that responds to the sounds of the surrounding environment, and when activated by the presence of a listener releases a collection of peaceful regional nature sounds from all four seasons. I designed and implemented all the software behind the scenes.

Hair Cell Landscape

For the company ME-DEL, Ars Electronica Solutions designed a number of varied, interactive exhibits inviting the visitors to consciously engage in the world of hearing. I designed and developed three of their main installations, namely the musical staircase, the hear cell landscape and the neural network.

The hear cell landscape was conceptualised to interactively represent how these sensory receptors work. Each hair is made out of a translucent material that can be bent and thus activated. Each single cell is associated to a frequency band from a background sound that the user will be able to hear when it’s active.

Neural Network

For the company ME-DEL, Ars Electronica Solutions designed a number of varied, interactive exhibits inviting the visitors to consciously engage in the world of hearing. I designed and developed three of their main installations, namely the musical staircase, the hearing cells and the neural network.

The neural network installation was an artistic approach to how the human brain process the sound information and tries to find the pattern recorded in one’s memory

Musical Staircase

For the company ME-DEL, Ars Electronica Solutions designed a number of varied, interactive exhibits inviting the visitors to consciously engage in the world of hearing. I designed and developed three of their main installations, namely the musical staircase, the hair cell landscape and the neural network.

The musical staircase installation generates an urban soundscape of the city of Innsbruck, Austria as the people walk up and down the stairs. When switch to the musical mode it converts the staircase into an interactive instrument, with every step playing a different note.
