drum set, fluorescent lightbulbs, custom electronics and hardware
installed in two 14′ x 12′ x 24′ portable buildings
The Big Bang Project is an audio/visual instrument that uses a drum set to trigger fluorescent lights in a 3-dimensional grid. The volume of sound produced by each drum is translated to the proportional volume of the performance space. Contact microphones on the drums are wired to custom mixers that divide the audio into multiple ranges of volume. Dimensions of height, length, and width are used to map coordinates of tone and amplitude within the grid.
