Saita Kazuki & Soiichiro Mihara & Hiroko Mugibayashi (jp)
moids 2.0

Sound Installation, 2009

The core element of this acoustic phenomenon is the combination of single reactive units. They react to their acoustic environment when the surrounding ambient noise exceeds a certain level for a certain time span by generating sounds. By connecting hundreds of these electro-acoustic units in space they form fuzzy, endless acoustic loops which are reminiscent of a frog pond or anthill soundscapes.

This project is part of the international cooperation Exchange Emergences between the Japan Media Arts Festival (jp) (http://plaza.bunka.go.jp/english/) and the Coded Cultures Festival (at).
