Which is your brass’s voice? has been created by Aether & Hemera in occasion of the International Brass Festival for celebrating Durham’s musical culture.
Each of the five microphones represents a specific brass instrument: Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba, Muted Trumpet and French Horn, sounds are generated capturing the individual nuances of volume, pitch and the intonation of people’s voices. An artificial Intelligence behind the artwork records all the notes performed and will create a new music composition at the end of the event.
The brass sounds outputted through surrounding speakers are synchronised with an array of coloured LED lights to create a fully immersive multi-sensory experience for the visitors. More information about this project's development here.
