Visual Sound Building / Interactive Videomapping

For 2012th edition of the Kernel Festival, Tigrelab was invited to take part in it. The festival is famous for mixing electronic music, audiovisual mapping, digital and interactive art. In honor of it, we created the “Visual Sound Building”. It was an interactive video mapping controlled by the audience using tablets and smartphones. It that was projected on the north façade of the villa Titoni Traverse in Desio, close to Milan (Italy).
As if it was a giant synthesiser, the windows of the villa acted as buttons that activated and deactivated the sounds of a musical composition modifying the algorithm generated by the visuals. The façade thereby became a tool for musical and visual creation controlled entirely by the audience using the three tablets or their mobile devices.
In this project, the mapping was our way to link the architectural rhythm of the facade with the rhythm of the music. Our project drew it’s inspiration from CGA graphics as well as films, music and video games from the 80s. For this project, we received a sponsorship and assistance from VDMX5 software.
