The head is stuck into a box, for an immersive light and sound experience
Software: Arduino, MaxMsp, Ableton Live
Music Credits: NoMundoFiorella EP
– In synchronising lights and sounds: there is a slight interval delay between signalling and lighting the strips, hence when matching the lights with the sounds, the signalling on Ableton may need to be slightly slower or faster than than music.
At certain positions, I failed to realise this, resulting in slightly uncoordinated lighting and music only realised during the actual setup.
– In the ending sequence where the lighting turns blue: Due to the close proximity between the projected surface and the led strip, variations in lighting levels for the higher intensity lighting was hard to differentiate by the human eye.
To this, I should have lowered the lighting levels so that the difference between a lower level lighting and the higher level lighting would be more distinct and differentiable.
– I would also have loved to expand the size of the box accommodate the entire human body, and to create a more immersive experience.
After this exercise I have widened my sights to varying types of light shows, and might want to further explore this for my fyp.
