  1. Project proposal

    This installation is an installment in a series of works where I want to explore the topic of algorithmically misreading data. For this purpose I want to create a live transformation of room sound involving all the noise of people visiting where people recognize that they are being recorded and amplified to a point where they no longer understand the connection of input and output. I already started working on this project implementing the core sound transformation of this piece as a C-external for Pure Data. This external reads every incoming floating point number (amplitude of the microphone membrane) as a string and converts it back to a float using the C-function ’atof’. This process basically results in waveshaping using a table with 2^32 entries where most entries are zero. Problems so far involve the design of algorithms analyzing the microphone input and automatically creating a very smooth transitions from the original input to the total madness of the external. I would be also interested in using data of other installations via osc to further influence the transformation.
