Sound Reactive Flash

July 8, 2006

BLOW, CLAP, TALK, HUM

Featuring an extensive selection of accessories from the A/W '06-7 collections, 'Blow, Clap, Talk & Hum' is a series of interactives that relies on specific noises created by the viewer. Possessing a particularly craft-based aesthetic, the playful interactives employ varying techniques that bring still-life images of carefully selected accessories –including shoes, bags, rings, hairpieces, necklaces and masks- to life. Each one of the four different interactives, encourages the viewer to make specific sounds –'blow', 'clap', 'talk' or 'hum'- into a microphone. These noises then activate a selection of accessories-themed 'stories' that take their form in a dress-up model, an animated crumpled paper sequence, a voice-activated selection of varyingly sized jewellery pieces and an animated shoe sequence, complete with 'footstep' audio.

ELEY KISHIMOTO

A sound reactive installation created for Eley Kishimoto's store in Southwark london. A monitor was mounted flush into a wall covered in their iconic 'flash' design wallpaper. As visitors to the shop make noises, the wallpaper seems to come alive as it reacts with one of 3 distinct interactive designs



A mouse controlled example of one of the interactive designs can be seen here.

SOUND REACTIVE TOYS

A series of sound reactive toys in answer to a brief set by Yugo Nakamura.

Fish race assigns a frequency to a fish who then move towards the finish line depending on how regularly that frequency is used in a piece of music. Players can choose their own music then place a bet on which fish they think will win.



Tomface distorts your picture by allowing the user to shout into a microphone or play some music. It's a graphic equaliser but using a face.



Lines, both in colour and black and white change rotation based around the frequencies in music. The coloured version is very fresh and simple whereas the black and white lines create fuzzy moire patterns reminiscent of television static.
