Swarm: Movement for Bodies and Strings

Kai Luen Liang

The Swarm is an interactive installation exploring the relationship of human interaction with multiplied automatic sound objects.  8 stringed instruments are controlled by the viewers distance to the object.  The score is to perform all the instruments at once, thus creating a mechanical drone mimicking the sound of a swarm of bees.  The projected visuals are generative and created based on the interaction between the viewer and the intensity of the sound.
