The Syma Line
Category: Design, Fashion, Sound
Designed by Layla Mueller and powered by ElektroCouture, The Syma Line explores the symbiosis between music, fashion and science.
Concretely this piece is able to create beautiful music just by touching it. In the same way, it can transform itself into a musical instrument.
Every pattern is based on one of physicist Ernst Chladni’s sound figures. The visitors will have the opportunity to play with the six different programmed sounds by touching the designs.
The designs were premiered at the FashionTech 2017 in Berlin.

Primavera Sound 2017
Category: Design, Light, Sound
In collaboration with ProtoPixel and TigreLab we created a smart lighting stage at Primavera Sound 2017. Five ProtoPixel Controllers were distributed in the structure, controlling over 200 meters of LED strips and multiple DMX lights.
I developed the the software that creates generative content, based on the design from TigreLab. The idea behind was that the sound would while the sound would drive the visual lighting creating reactive patterns and an immersive experience.

The project was powered by Elektrocouture and designed by Anja Dragan. I was responsible for lighting technology, as well as creator of the content and interaction.
It was exhibited at Fashion Tech Berlin 2017.
Inspired by the White Nights – nights that are never completely dark – Dragan created a jacket that is lit with 336 Osram LEDs. This unique decorative detail was developed in collaboration with Forster Rohner Textile Innovations – a Swiss supplier of highly sophisticated modern embroidery techniques.
Forster Rohner‘s e-broidery® technology integrates active lighting on fabrics that can be washed, draped or ironed and have therefore all the properties needed for garment production. The piece is powered by a hidden rechargeable battery.

By extrapolating from current trends, we can make some good guesses about future astonishing shows. Yet, when we think of future of nightlife , too often we restrict our imagination to particular areas: more gadgets for musicians, more lights, more projections, etc. But some of the truly exciting developments will be around festivals and shows that will improve culture and catalyze our creativity.
New technologies offer us opportunities for shaping the public spaces in which people move, behave and interact. It can even can accommodate a wide range of creative uses. The future idea would be that the whole festival’s space would be constantly changing, and everybody would be able to interact with it.
That’s why we are developing a space for the attendees to create a collective sculpture. The users will be able to place different building block pieces, anywhere on the table. The relationship between shapes and the positions will generate a soundscape of its own, as well as light patterns underneath the pieces.
