Diskotron (2002)
Modified turntable, software, optical sensor and computer

Diskotron is an optical turntable that can play "records" which can be printed or drawn. The turntable is outfitted with a high-resolution optical sensor array and a speedy microprocessor, enabling it to turn visual marks and codes into MIDI sequences in real time. Connected to a computer, Diskotron functions as a live performance instrument combined with a hands-on tangible interface.

IIE, Interactive Infrasonic Installation, Reinhard Gupfinger, interactive_infrasonic_environment.jpg
IIE is an interactive acoustic installation through which Reinhard Gupfinger researches infrasounds, that is, those sounds that, having a frequency less than 20/16 Hertz (20/16 cycles per second), are below the audible threshold of the human ear. While the ear is insensitive to those sounds, the human body can nevertheless perceive
them as vibrations. It is this possibility that the Austrian artist explores in this work, raising awareness of this relatively unknown curiosity. In fact, infrasounds are extremely common in nature, since they are emitted by atmospheric phenomena, such as thunder and wind, and by some animals (whales, elephants, etc.), which use them to communicate over distances.

Ghost Jockey is a computer program that continually generates mashup audio and video. The program repeatedly swaps audio samples from a library, layers and aligns them by tempo and key, and makes decisions on volume levels. The visuals are created by running a Google image search on the name and artist of each sample, cycling through the results, and adjusting the brightness with the volume of each sample track; the result is multi-track layered images that pulse with the music.
