Julie & Gabriel: The title of our project was Ciel Etoile which means starry sky, our concept stems from the idea of an animated night sky fractured by the movement of the music. We added moving fog to reference a Nordic environment, and set up a GUI to transition different visualizations to move through the narrative of the music played. We connected the percussionist to the fracturing of the background to visualize the breaking of the environment with the abrupt key points in the piece. The double bass controlled the moving particles that was originally controlled by the GUI to move through the narrative of the song.
Namreta & Brendan:
This project was a collaborative effort between The New World Symphony in Miami and Parsons, MFA Design and Technology. These particular projects were an extension of the Collaboration Studio run last semester by Edward Keller and Joe Saavedra. The six students who worked on the project split into thee teams, two visualization teams and one hardware team.
