Hvad hører du nu? : Urban Echo in København

Composer J. Anthony Allen and I are currently showing the latest edition of Urban Echo in Copenhagen for the ICMC conference. While our original desire to creatively reflect and transmit the desires and thoughts of local city-dwellers has remained, each new location has suggested a different approach. The installation in the courtyard of Huset i Magstræde in downtown Copenhagen is no exception. In this latest installment, J. Allen and I have tightly coupled the audio and visual components and worked to make the projections more “sensitive” to their façade. For example, when text and images are moving about, they respond to the presence of architectural features such as doors and windows by avoiding or bouncing off of them. A quick look at the images or video will make this a bit clearer.

We will be showing this through the end of the week. The sound components run all day and the video components run from dusk until around 10pm. If you want to participate, respond via voice or text message to:

+45 50 50 44 08

It’s a Danish number, but international text messages are pretty cheap. So go for it!
