ACOUSTICS — MUSIC — AI
Dhvani is an interactive sound installation comprising a network of 51 suspended, inter-connected Indian temple bells under which the visitor is invited to stroll. The project incorporates the latest research in acoustics and artificial intelligence and is intended to create future-proof ‘auditive situations’. When one bell is set in motion, the entire network starts to vibrate and create what can only be described as a ‘sound ballet’ orchestrated by artificial intelligence invented by the project team. The Dhvani bells become the keyboard of a completely new musical instrument!
