musical doors header-01.jpg

The intent behind this project was to create an interactive audio intervention in apublic space. I wanted to test people, see how they reacted and not have them be aware that they were going to be a part of a project. By turning a six door entrance into a musical instrument,  people passing through the doors triggered notes and created music together.

 

 

I initially wanted the sound to be generated from Pure Data but found that the sounds I produced there were a bit to harsh for a public setting. While I do have experience with sound synthesis, I do not have that much within the realm of Pure Data, So I opted to send midi to Ableton. this didn't really work and there were some latency issues so i decided to trigger samples instead, that way I could have more control over the sound.
