A Musical Wall

A preliminary sketch render, this wall is composed of an elastic fabric material which covers a matrix of proximity sensors attached to servo motors by a string. As the proximity sensors record different measurements, the motors spin in either direction related to the measurements which pulls on the fabric covering in that particular spot. An undulating surface is generated by interacting with the surface, running past it, touching it, or even dancing. The matrix is read and processed as parameters for a musical score that is output through speakers at the location of the wall allowing for a didactic experience of form and sonic manipulation.
