Concert with pneumatic installation, translating soundwaves into movements and vice versa

My starting-point of this graduation project (Artscience KABK, former Interfaculty Sound and Image) was to meet IMAGE (3D-movements), through (an analyse of) SOUND, with a triggering between both. Taking away the abstract SOUNDWAVE from a display to make it visible, audible and real, combined with technical challenges. Trying to make feed-back visible to avoid the installation being just air.

To translate soundwaves into 3D-movements I used 5 pneumatic pistons, whose movements correspond to the changing figures shown by the oscilloscope. So the cylinders are showing real-time the movements of the audible soundwaves by going up and down.

The image of the soundwaves is also projected on the pistons. It lets the shadows play and closes the beginning and end of the cyclus.

The installation is triggered by original soundrecordings of the cylinders, valves and compressors itselves. That means that they react on their own sounds (4 channels, 50 samples, live mixed and optional live sounds from microphone).

Feedback with me as conductor in between, which closes the circle of sound. However, each sound-input could be optional, as wel as complete self-acting behavior without any need of me in between.

Krankenhaus can be considered as an experience-artproject in the environment, an electronic / pneumatic concert of original sounds, live pneumatic noise, original changing images of the oscilloscope used as input signal and the industrial show of the pistons, going up till 2 meters high, made to lift 1000 kilo's each, are just dancing in the air, which makes a strange real / unreal impression.
