How can we use technology to democratize art making?

The Answer

The Answer

We should be able to sing designs.

See Sound is another installment in our continued exploration of Augmented Art, where humans collaborate with advanced technologies to create new creative expressions.

We identified the human voice as the most universal expressive tool, and created software to listen to its nuances; distortion, timbre, volume, pitch, plosives, and dynamic change. It translates these data points in real-time to create 3D sculptures. Further, it operates as a loop composer, allowing users to “stack” audio and visual signatures to create multi-tracked compositions and further sophisticated sculptures.

The artwork premiered with a performance by vocal gymnast and beatboxing genius Reeps One as we tested the outer limits of “vocalizing design into existence”.

Additionally, See Sound outputs final sound sculptures as looping videos and gifs to share with the world. Further, the data can be sent to a 3D printer to translate your voice into a physical sculpture.

Whisper a secret. Sing a song. Tell it your name. See Sound will trap your voice like a bug in amber to create a visual memento of that thought and expression.
