The first sound installation art which I really appreciate is Murmur, a video and sound installation which translates sound waves into visuals. The audience can talk into Murmur’s ‘echo chamber’, and a direct visible interaction with the visuals on the walls becomes visible. In a way, the exact sound waves and its configuration can be displayed in a visual form. I feel that it is really unique because it has some sort of a personality in it. Every person’s voice differs whether it is in octave or pitch, which makes every sound wave produced especially unique.
The second sound installation art which really inspired me is Oscillare; An Interactive Dawn by Oscar Sol from Electronic Performers. It is an interactive multimedia dance performance. Four accelerometers, a gyroscope and a wireless video camera capture the movements of the dancer, which are used to generate and influence the sound and images on the screen. I really like it a lot because alike the effects of Murmur, every person’s dance and movement of their muscles is different, which makes every sound generated different. It is a presentation where static technology meets the moving human body. The interaction and link between movement, sound and visuals are also very clear, which makes the installation especially incredible.
