Subjective cartographies (2013…)

Subjective cartographies is a series of projects dwelling around landscape sonification. The series so far includes two iterations presented here. A third is currently in progress.

………………………………………………………………………………

Subjective Cartography I (City?) – An urban-like architecture constrains the movement of particles, much like the movement of humans inside a city. An imaginary city in continuous transformation where graphic components are audio-reactive and also the motor of sonic actions. Images and synthetic sounds are rendered in real time by an algorithm fed with meteorological data. The speed and direction of the wind, the humidity and the temperature felt in three randomly selected cities will generate transformations that take place over several days and invite passive contemplation.

Subjective Cartography II (Street View) – An installation made of a TV screen and an accordion robot choir. Images of suburban streets are displayed on screen, analyzed by computer and transposed to sound on accordions. The skyline generates a melody that follows the contours of trees and suburban architecture.
