Russian artist ::vtol:: (aka. Dmitry Morozov) creates physical gadgets that deploy algorithms in the sound making process. This project, Red, combines optical projections with electronic sound synthesis. The sound has four channels, each of which interacts with the various physical components, including position of the motors and brightness of the light. For more on Red, see the Creators Project post.
Taking inspiration from Ryoji Ikeda, whose installation Datamatics (2006) combines lots of visual and sonic information in a coherent, striking way that reads as also simple and straightforward.
