Divisions – Musical Interface

Divisions is an instrument controlled by light and dark to make sounds.

My inspiration was to use light instead of hard physical objects to have a conversation. Part of my intention was to add a level of abstraction between the human and the device. I also imagined how obstacles could cause miscommunication. In a performance, the obstacles, ambient light and reflections can cause misunderstands or accidentally cause the human/device to be more intimate with each other by revealing more than intended.
