Thx guys glad you like it
Interesting Idea but as a musician I really enjoy just seeing, feeling, playing interacting. Also the fact that every sound and image comes from the "real" physical world makes it interesting for us. I could imagine the image triggering certain modulations though.
We have experimenting with more physical or direct links between what we do though:
Here I put a contact mic into the aquarium to take some it's sounds.
In the second part we have a subwoofer attached to a surface filled with water. The music directly creates geometric patterns in the image.
Here my mate is painting on a surface with a contact mic. I feed this sound into a vocoder and kind of resynthesize it.
My next step will be trying something simple: Control the light of the overhead projector under the aquarium from my axoloti system. That way I could at sometimes modulate the light with an envelope follower of my audio for example to create more connection between image and sound.
Not sure how to do this though. I've been advised to dig into the dmx protocol, wich theoretically could be implemented on axoloti.
