The idea for this project is to elastically mount eight speaker enclosures. When the speakers are stable, the sound level is low and even. When one is moved its volume (and audio content) begins to fluctuate. Since all the speakers are physically connected by some kind of elastic material, pushing one will have an effect on the rest. The size of the speaker will most likely correspond to the output frequency, although this is all subject to change a bit.
My goal for this project is to create an interactive spatial sound piece. The sound will be perceived spatially, but also the interaction with the objects is spatial. Ideally, accelerometers will measure movement through space, and the proximity between each object will be measured. The concept of space will be investigated on microscopic and macroscopic levels.
How much input is too much? How simple should I keep it? What kind of materials would work best? Should all the objects be the same, just differ in size?
