Project description

The project includes the creation of a place-specific interactive sound art installation to be placed outdoors at Umeå university. The interactive sound art installation will be developed to create a constantly ongoing and changeable music performance, based on the activity and data flow from the Super Computer (installed at the HPC2N: High Performance Computing Center North) in combination with peoples actions when interacting with the installation. The research is conducted through several short iterations. A media ecology theoretical perspective is guiding the research processes.
