Microsonic Landscapes is an algorithmic, spatial exploration of four music albums. An algorithm written in Processing parses audio data into a radial 3D space. This three- dimensional information is then modeled and 3D printed using a Makerbot Replicator. The sculptures follow a radial order. The first track of each album can be located at the sculpture’s center. From that point, the piece starts to grow until the final track is placed on the outer ring. The Microsonic Landscapes pieces have toured Seoul, Barcelona, London, Paris, Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City. They are shown for the first time in Santa Barbara. The project is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts (FONCA, MX).
