The Deluxe Vectorscope is a sound visualizer developed in Processing which expands on a familiar tool found in almost any mixing studio, the vectorscope (or goniometer), which displays in 2-dimensional space the relationship (correlation) between 2 signals, typically left and right channels in a stereo mix. Here, rather than being used to indicate mono compatibility (whether or not a stereo track has enough correlation between its two channels so that they may be summed to create a mono mix) the Deluxe Vectorscope may be used to generate real-time video or stills of a sound input, with many different visualization customization options.
A collaboration between Ted Coffey (concept, programming) and myself (programming), Angels / Over Exposure is an interactive video installation in which participants shine lights on projected images of the August 12th conflict in Charlottesville to reveal underlying frescoes of angels. The lights (or the participant's shadows) burn away the layers of images, ultimately creating a collectively-produced abstract collage of conflict and sanctitude.
Hosted at the 11th annual Let There Be Light, an event that celebrates the approach of the winter solstice and the longest night of the year with light-based art installations created by local and regional artists. The exhibition illuminates and transforms the darkened grounds surrounding the V. Earl Dickinson Building for one night only and is attended by over 2,500 people yearly.
Collaboration with percussionist Fernando Rocha and instrument builder Peter Bussigel. Video is projected onto the front of the instrument that responds to the sounds of gestures, extending the instrument to be a self-contained micro light show.
