The Conductor


Sound & Data art

Andrew Blanton and Scot Gresham-Lancaster introduce and discuss CONDUCTOR, an exploration in real-time sound diffusion using multiple iOS devices as sensors for the placement of sound.

The design references the historical use of spatial dimensions in music and addresses how the disintegration of traditional audience/performer roles creates massive implications for this new approach to “conducting”. The system requires at least four channels of audio for 360 degree audio spatialization.
