Sound / Art Installations
I was hoping some of you could share some of your favorite sound installations you've either seen in person or have come across on the net. Here are a couple cool ones I thought were worth sharing.
A mapping by 1024 Architecture, projected on the facade of former Lyrical theater the "Celestins". The building deformations and figures were controlled by the audience, using a microphone and an audio analysis algorythm.



And here is a pretty cool spot in Frankfurt, Germany with some really nice drones. Bummed I didn't know about this one while I was on holiday, road tripping through eastern Europe!
Sonic Vista, by O+A, Bruce Odland and Sam Auinger, is a permanent sound installation commissioned for the 20th anniversary of the Frankfurt Greenbelt. It offers visitors the perfect site to hear the whole city. A gentle halo of harmonically tuned real-time sound emanates from two "Sphere" loudspeakers which radiate the sound in all directions without "hot spots" and function as visual attractors seen from the whole city. This listening spot now connects the north and south portions of Frankfurt's famous Greenbelt.
