Colin Zyskowski: Locating Sonic Sources

Colin Zyskowski (UC San Diego): $1,000 for Locating Sonic Sources. Mini-Grant.

Construction of a mobile sound source and microphone array (rovers) that will act as a moving sound and visual installation. The project explores interaction between machines and humans as they inhabit and move throughout the same space. Additionally, the project meshes the biological and mechanical by attributing animal behaviors to the machines in question; not only will the rovers interact with the audience, but also with each other as they exhibit call and response and flocking behaviors.
