about

MASZ_IN was commissioned to create an art installation for the Outer Spaces Festival 2013. We decided to make a Musical Arcade Machine. Two capacitive sensors acted as controllers and RGB LED Modules served as a display. Each animated character was made of sound samples and coloured blocks. Each had 4/8/16 sequences making it a music sequencer. By destroying block of each "monster" a user was disabling one sample from the sequence. Therefore, each level became a different track. To create the characters we made a mini tool that allowed us to create new creatures, assign audio samples, and export them to Raspberry Pi.

Technologies used: Raspberry Pi, RGB LEDs, Arduino, Capacitive Sensing
