Chromatic Composer- video


Chromatic Composer (CC) is an interactive drawing and playing machine that acts with sound and visual by translating one into another. It is a friendly robot with a chromatic language; the sound captured with a microphone activates and drives the coloured pens motion into unique creations. Audience can clap, talk, sing or even play a song for CC; more versatile sounds will lead to richer drawings.

Once the drawing is ready CC functions as an instrument while the drawing becomes a score ; users can direct the camera over the drawing and hear the machine’s version.

The process of an analogue sound digitally processed, converted into an “analogue” drawing, and the further iteration of the translation process to complete the cycle back to sound pretends to be an example of the possibilities, advantages and disadvantages that can exist in our connections with technologies.
