About the work:
"World Sound Mix for BankART LIFE3" is a sound visual installation, generating new soundscape around the world. This work continues mixing the sounds at selected two points somewhere in the world from the database of huge quantities of environment sounds and generating new soundscape.
For this exhibition, we set up a magic box that resonates mixed soundscape in Sapporo and somewhere in the world. During the exhibition, a globe in the box keeps turning and resonating sounds in real time.
The logs of sound trip experienced with visitors to the exhibition will continue to be recorded during the whole period of the exhibition. The record of sound trip will be released as a new content on this page as interactive application.
