minimal audible fields

lili maya james rouvelle

minimal audible fields generates visual compositions in response to low frequencies at the threshold of sound and vibration propagating through the installation site.

materials: LEDs, micro-controllers, sensors, mixed media.

in detail:
minimal audible fields is a robotic work whose inputs are low frequency sound and vibration on-site. every 54 seconds the project analyzes the past 54 seconds of sound and vibration, and compares its readings with the previous set of data it generated 54 seconds in the past. the pattern of LEDs is determined by this comparison. the timing of the piece is intended to permit visitors time to look at the compositions generated by the project.

this project was shown at sequence of waves, in st. cecilia’s gallery, greenpoint, brooklyn, january 2011.
