Bouncing for projection, camera, ambisonic audio (2011, rev. 2016)
by Zach Thomas and Krzysztof Wolek
Bouncing is an interactive audio-visual installation designed initially for children. It uses a Kinect controller to project an avatar of the user inside of a virtual room which becomes mapped to the space the user is standing in. Collisions with the bouncing objects inside of the virtual room give the sound feedback and help to create a sound composition using positional audio, blending virtual and real space. The project is realized bridging four different applications of which Max is a central component. The virtual environment is designed to allow users to engage in composition through play and embodiment.
