2-channel audio over 8 speakers, Max/MSP software, IpsonLab microcontroller, custom electronics, wood

BA017 is a study on auditory-spatial perception. The installation runs continuously, integrated in the quotidian activity of a three-floor transit staircase. Working as a ‘sonic illumination’ for the space, simple pulse-based audio material is used to expose the aural architecture of the space.

The composition follows an algorithmic behavior, with streams of computer-generated sound falling, ascending, jumping, changing speed, direction and patterns, alternating with periods of silence.
