Drops is an audio/visual, interactive system that reflects on humankind’s relationship with the natural world and our need for unity in tackling climate change. The work allows viewers to work together and collaborate in the creation of an “ocean like” soundscape. A single water drop is displayed, taking centre stage of the piece. This drop moves, changes and distorts as it reacts to the accompanying soundscape. The piece is generative, constantly creating music in real-time.

 

Part performance, part installation, the piece allows multiple viewers the ability to connect directly to the work and collaborate with how the piece reacts. Multiple viewers can use their own mobile devices to control a range of parameters, each affecting a different sonic and visual behaviour.

 

The piece can be either displayed as a fixed space installation or is ran as a performance, with multiple users controlling the work in collaboration.
