Sonic Installations + Sculpture

Ark Audio can facilitate the inception, design and creation of interactive Sonic Art Installations or Sculptures.

Using cutting edge open-source technology (both hardware and software) that allow the interfacing of sound with other forms of energy (motion, light, pressure, water, visual interaction) we can create bespoke audio controllers, synths/ sound generators or other forms of interactive sonic artwork.

Examples:

Pendulum Wave:

Ark Audio designed and constructed this device under comission for sound artist James Roberts.
The pendulum wave is a physics toy that demonstrates the beauty of maths within nature. It was Ark Audio’s mission to convert this physics sculpture into a sonic device. Using arduinos, each swinging ball triggers a note. The results are mesmerisng.
