|Welcome to musicalenvironments.com.|
We are a collective of Musicians, Artists and Sound Engineers interested in reuniting Music and Architecture.
Our innaugural project (pictured at right) is installed in the Atrium at Langham Place, Mong Kok, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Architect Brian Honda at Mix Studio Works first approached us with the concept of an Interactive Architectural Soundtrack for this space. As we learned the history of the site (former bird market) and experienced the scale of the space (200' tall,
with a digital projection screen ceiling!) we formed the basic ideas for the sounds which would be heard.
The interactivity interface is in the form of light sensors hanging from one of the metal trees within the Atrium. As people pass under the sensors, sounds are triggered which are compatible with the background music composed for the project. The progression of music and the sounds triggered by people passing under the sensors are randomized by a computer running MAX/MSP software by Cycling'74.
