Floating Lines – Kinetic & audio-reactive light sculpture

Thanks for sending this in Giuseppe! Via Opificio Sonico

I would like to introduce you my last work named Floating Lines. It is a kinetic and audio-reactive light sculpture, which create a synesthetic experience of motion, colors and sound visualization. The polygonal shape of the structure is moved in the space by three stepper
motors as winch of three steel wires controlled by MIDI Control Change messages over Arduino Leonardo.

The ten light metal segments that make up Floating Lines, are covered of RGB LED strips mapped to four different range of sound frequency : Blue (Low), Red (Mid), Green (High), White (Noise) which display real-time music composition by luminous impulses. The segments are randomly activated by a MIDI arpeggiator. This work is part of my topical experiences in mechatronics automation applied to the creative processes in music composition, digital art and open-source opportunities.

Following the idea of my previous works, also in this installation all automations, lights and music are fully controlled by a single Digital Audio Workstation, in order to give a common language to connect sound gesture, mechanical movements and visual experience.
