While we are clearly evangelists of the power of audio-visual technology to impress an audience, this particular example of audio-visual installation art has us completely mesmerised. With names like Frank Gehry, Walt Disney Concert Hall and Refik Anadol involved, it clearly represents a new high point for the creation of an audio-visual experience.
Fastcompany provides some interesting insight into the process behind this creation, when it says that “(an algorithm) transforms the music and the movements of conductor Esa-pekka Salonen (captured by a Microsoft Kinect) into light projections. The light serves as the artistic medium, and Gehry’s architecture becomes the canvas”.
