max mspThe sound scape is spatialised on 8 speakers channels. The caracteristics of the sound and its spatialisation are linked to the gestures of the spectators, observed by an infrared camera.

A tracking software does a background substraction analysis of the video that provides the position, speed, and shape of the person immerged in the installation. Theses parameters are transmitted to Max/MSP software that compute the sound scape in real time.

This installation functions fully automatically and doesn’t need any particular maintenance or human intervention. It has already been in function for entire weeks without encountering any particular problem.

*Since “Dans le noir…” places spectators in the full darkness, it is advised to provide with the presence of a mediator at the entrance of the installation to help  some spectators to face the experience of total darkness.
