Sound Gate is an electronic instrument that brings the performative aspect into a digital music workstation It enables new possibilities of syncretic expression through movement, sound and vision. In essence, it's a semi-transparent piece of fabric with electronic components and triggers embedded into it. The device is powered by an Arduino, connected to a Processing app. Once the fabric is touched by the user, different musical samples are played.
The form and function of it is open-ended and suggests use in conjunction with other media, such as projection mapping.
More coming soon.
