I worked with a very talented team to help realise artist DV Rogers’ Domus, an “experimental anti-seismic architecture incorporating spatialised seismic sound and light”.

The piece is being exhibited at Materials & Applications, LA. A unique and long standing space that supports creative architectural work, exhibiting pieces for 6 months at a time.

Realtime seismic data is collated from around the world by a python server application written by Stock Plum. A spatial audio C++ application developed by Ryan McGee then turns this data into haunting soundscapes, which are fed into an application I developed with Cinder to drive the lights and help make Romantic this often dark subject matter. The installation also periodically runs through an historic playlist of some of the largest earthquakes of the last few decades.





Flight data turned into a sublime spatial experience.
