A sound installation in which artificial intelligence imagines and materialises an endless soundscape
Sonic Pendulum is sound installation in which artificial intelligence imagines and materialises an endless soundscape. Generating a calming ambient-sound and bass-line atmosphere; the algorithm conducts the voice of Miyu Hosoi and processes disturbances around the space, generated by the crowd themselves. The result is in an ever-evolving piece - each moment singular, never to be repeated exactly again - in conversation with its visitors and the way in which they move around the space.
The structure is made up of 30 pendulums which - while gently modulating the sound coming from speakers through doppler effect - are also a visual representation of a dream: a systematised mess, with moments of order emerging from the chaos.
Yuri Suzuki Design Studio collaborated with world leading creative AI experts, QOSMO for Sonic Pendulum. Established in 2009, Qosmo have been working at the forefront of algorithm design as a new means of creation and expression, with a particular focus on sonic works.
