Theometrica – Generative sound synthesis instrument inspired by acupuncture

Created by Osacr Palou & Alexander Müller-Rakow at the UdK, Theometrica is a sound interface that explores the relation of ethnologic, geometric graphics and generative sound synthesis.

Inspired by acupuncture, a traditional Chinese medicine technique based on the insertion and manipulation of needles, this sculptural instrument is designed to control sound elements in real time by fixing specific pins into a spinning disk. Furthermore, its interface design represents an active space where geometrical constellations are being decoded into sound events.
