Sound reactive installation

(Jimena Maldonado & Juan Luis Montoro)

The Quantified Self (lifelogging) is a specific movement by Gary Wolf and Kevin Kelly from Wired magazine, which began in 2007 and tries to incorporate technology into data acquisition on aspects of a person’s daily life.

In this installation, members of the audience affect directly the result of the soundscape played in the bar-room during the break of a concert . The parameters of the electronics are controlled by the physiological state of the audience member who tries on the heartbeat sensor and the galvanic skin sensor.
