Faces2Voices

Faces2Voices is an online interactive installation which uses facial recognition technology to create a generative music composition based on imaginary voices of online visitors. The composition is evolving over time depending on the contributions of people involved.

These-Eyes

These-Eyes is a live coding performance with an interactive component from the viewers. A website is set up on Heroku to grab an image from https://thispersondoesnotexist.com periodically and scanned for eyes using OpenCV. These eyes are then constructed in a collage and presented on the top of the site and dynamically updated. Optionally, the public can submit their own detected eyes by turning on their webcam.

Lachesis Algorithm (part of the triptych “The Moirae”)

The three Moirae are transformed from mythical entities to three algorithms and re-define the destiny of western archives. Mythical beings acquire algorithmic substance and derive material from the open licensed repositories of Western culture through the Europeana accumulator.
The stored files become operational after being fragmented and rebuilt through structural modification.

Good-for-nothing

What are digital abstractions? For modern, abstract painting, the physicality of its material components corroborates its meaning: the substrate, the paint itself, or collaged elements questioned conventional relations between figure and ground. Perspective was key to understanding this meaning, as was the picture plane (corresponding to the surface of a picture, perpendicular to the viewer’s line of sight) which fixed the object in time and space.

chloroquine popups

Chloroquine pop-ups is a webessay composed around the moment in which Brazil exceeded 100,000 deaths from SARS-CoV-2. The work explores exhaustively sound, visual and interactive elements of the web browser interface: pop-ups, mouse movements and the dragging of the windows constitute the ways of playing the instrument that performs this composition.

Nexploria

Designed by French artist Gaël Tissot, Nexploria is an artistic experience, playful and social, freely accessible. Equipped with a headset or loudspeakers, the user/explorer navigates on the interface, selects fragments of music, words and background sounds, assembles them and shares his creation on the platform.

COVID-19 Data Sonification

Extracting official data of the Italian situation a specifically designed algorithm turns the daily numbers of confirmed cases, recovered patients and new deaths into ever-evolving sound waves.

Day by day, as the Covid-19 situation evolves, the numbers change, and so do the frequencies of the sounds that we hear, abandoning the initial harmony.

Insecta & Aves for the End of the World – A solar powered sound installation

The project consists of a solar-powered sound installation.
The main purpose of this project is to stimulate a reflection focused on the acoustic dimension that characterizes the spaces we live in and in which we are inserted daily, with the aim to raise awareness of the importance of the sound element within the natural and artificial landscape and of the impacts that noise pollution has on human activities and animal life.

MindCoding

MindCoding is an experimental platform that allows all people to perform with code in real time, even if they have knowledge in music/programming or not. This platform uses the information collected by an electroencephalography sensor in real time and converts it into supercollider code.
