Sonic Explorer

Audio installation

Szymon Kaliski (from flow/control) collaborated with talented Marek Straszak on interactive audio art piece, built for Art+Bits festival in 2014, and later exhibited at WRO Biennale 2015, the biggest Polish new-media art biennale.

The installation consists of five steel deconstructed icosahedrons, equipped with Arduinos and solenoids, which can be wirelessly controlled by a simple touchscreen interface. Solenoids hit the steel frame making sound, and because all of the geometries are different, the frequencies they make differ too.

The heart of the installation was an extremely simple touchscreen-based UI, which allowed visitors to sequence solenoids hits.
