Beat of the City
The process behind 'Beat of the City', a submission for the Art In The Air project.


A representation of Philadelphia's heartbeat through sound-waves. The skyline reacts to sound as it would have a life of its own.

The system maps sound data to visual elements representing the heart-beat of the city responding to the urban voice.

This particular video is a recording of an interaction between graphics and music, where the line movement is triggered by actual sound data.

Presence of a sound sensor would turn the system into an interactive experience.
