Sound Box is an interactive installation that explores questions of notation
and representation of sonic atmospheres through an in situ graphic mapping
of sounds. A room within the exhibition room, Sound Box â€˜performsâ€™ a distinct
sound environment, out of the juxtaposition of pre-recorded sounds, and the
improvised interactions of users with the materiality of the Boxâ€™s structure.
The installation defines an ambient musical environment, which is conditioned
by the movement of the users on an interactive floor. This immersive sonic
atmosphere is recorded in realtime by a Drawing Device, which allocates and
relocates graphic matter upon a tensioned surface, through the resonance of
the live-fed sound environment. Like a reversed music box, Sound Box performs
the script of its â€˜musicâ€™, out of the interaction of architectural elements,
musical sounds and the improvisations of users.
