Images and video from an Exhibition at Dundee Science Centre 2015 by Dr Kenneth McAlpine of BitBox: an installation that takes game music from the screen and brings it into the room. Using ultrasonic sensors, the system tracks your position in 3D space and uses your location in real time to create evolving soundscapes, dynamic textures and interactive music tracks. “Writing music which changes in real-time, in response to input from a listener or game player, requires a different approach and a different set of skills than writing more traditionally structured music.[...] BitBox! breaks down the complex structural elements, allowing users to explore interactive music through expressive play and without the need to able to play an instrument.”
