Rhythmanalysis – images

I recently made a post about a rhythmanalysis of both the University Station subway stop as well as Knox Hall on North Campus at UB here: http://adamlaskowitz.com/blog/?p=282

Here are 2 images I made trying to visually depict the rhythms experienced at the two sites:

University Station

Knox Hall

Prototype: 2-14-2012


This chair consists of a surface transducer (sparkfun), an audio amplifer (radioshack), arduino mega, and the music shield (seeeduino). I have crowd-sourced ‘everyday’ sounds by allowing people to upload sounds to my website. The music shield has a microSD card installed with these sounds loaded on the card. Upon sitting on the chair a pressure sensor is enacted which triggers audio to begin playing out of the surface speaker. This is all for now but eventually there will be an algorithm which decides when to play sounds, which sounds to play, and the amount of sounds played simultaneously. Upon interaction, audio recording will be initiated as well which will begin to record the sounds of the ‘everyday’ environment of the chair. Check back for more in a few days.
