This paper researches the possibilities of using interactive interfaces to enhance audience participation in audio-visualization artwork. The research will be conducted with three interfaces: Arduino knob sensors, a web camera, and a leap motion. Each input will trigger different visual parameters, giving the audience dynamic exploration through projects.
This work is inspired by a performance area called VJ'ing, in which live visuals and music are shared with audiences. I noticed most video jockeys (VJs) use MIDI Controllers and knobs to build visual content which can match the DJ set. This inspired my interest in exploring other interactive interfaces to manipulate visuals in new ways. I use Research-Creation, a methodology through making combined with my previous knowledge and practices, to build new approaches to sound visualization.
This work will be set up in an empty space; three different inputs will generate different visual effects based on a similar visual style. The audience participating in the interactive experience will see how different interfaces can create possibilities and inspire potential users. These explorations' possibilities can apply to various areas, such as live performances and digital art creations.
