Diamond in the rough (The Bathhouse) | Live Electronic Performance project
Inspired by Dr. Ben Freeth’s work (Decoded in discovery museum). Ben advised me to combine Arduino and Puredata together to have some fun.
Bathhouse in Miyazaki’s best film Spirited Away is the place to start. The place for gods to come and take a bath. Place where spirits meet. This led me to the decision to use the fog maker (inspired by Ben).
A design in small aquarium is the result of this approach. Aquarium gravel and rocks are the main needed materials for the mystic view design. Combing with simple chords writing from logic pro, I designed a simple music box with carton and letter envelopes, then covered the theme song from the film.
Simply testing with sound data sending from Arduino to Puredata. Use all fresh skills I learned from Professor John Bowers’s live electronic performance module and Dr. Tom Schofield’s Arduino sessions.
