LiveCameraFeed

A live camera feed from the top of the Klangturm is piped to the installation in real-time.

The image is analysed for colour content and this data is used to create a spectral envelope over sound sources collected from around the sound tower, ranging from ambient sound textures outside the building to sound from other installations on display at the same time.

Landscraper Cushions

Visitors sit on reactive cushions to trigger sonic and visual interruptions to the state of the klangkugel (sound ball).

The view from the camera is disturbed by the actions of people sitting. Visitors watch this on the small TV surveillance monitors.
