Backpack of BOOM
this year I received a Transformus art grant to bring the ‘backpack of boom!’
A solar-powered, portable sound system equipped with a wii remote controlled, dynamic, audio sculpture..
Each wii remote (there are 4) manipulates various elements of a song, as it plays, allowing participants to change loops, patterns, and textures, add effects, as well as record and overdub sounds. All while each of the sounds remain in sync and in key with the whole composition. This is presented via backpack 5.1 surround sound system with tentacle speakers run via solar power.
