ELECTRON DRAWING-VISUAL MUSIC
Artist: Timothy Nohe
Electron Drawing-Visual Music encourages audiences of all ages to become active creators of live technological art and beautiful, mathematically derived music and drawings. This interactive artwork is rooted in expressive drawing, fascinating mathematical discoveries of the 19th century, and the “switched-on” synthesizer music of the 1960s. Audiences directly shape the video-projected electronic drawings and music through a joystick and button arcade controllers.
