Visual Orchestra (installation)

Visual Orchestra (2001, real-time interactive digital media art installation)

Visual Orchestra is a real-time interactive digital installation that provides a platform for investigating the synthesis of musical rhythms with visual rhythms.  The installation provides a user-friendly interface that enables visitors to compose an abstract musical animation piece; using a piano-style keyboard interface selected because of its ease of use, participants compose abstract audio-visual elements in real-time to form dynamic audio-visual compositions.  While helping to foster creative activity, this interactive digital installation was designed to be fun, easy to use and universally accessible to people of all ages and cultures.
