Sound/Space is a architecturally-inspired physical interface for pushing and pulling sound -- an interactive architecture prototype. The device is meant to both stand on its own, reacting to what it hears, and provide control over the audio environment for the users.

By pushing and pulling the points along the shape's exterior, users will be able to change the parameters of filters, delays, buffers, etc., allowing them to "play" the sounds around them as music.

Background
I've long been interested in how the sound we hear is defined by the space we're in -- so I wanted to find a way to control the space myself, and therefore change what I hear.

Audience
Anybody who wants to hear the space they're in a little differently.

User Scenario
By pushing and pulling the points along the shape's exterior, users will be able to change the parameters of filters, delays, buffers, etc., allowing them to "play" the sounds around them as music.
