The LIGHT CLOUD is a large scale sound and light installation located at the new Merck Innovation Center in Darmstadt, Germany. Our contribution to this special project was to create an interactive and generative 3D sound environment that consists of more than 80 unique soundscapes.
The main layout and design of the Light Cloud is inspired by the various physical and emotional states of a living organism. Each audiovisual composition reflects one character-trait of this artificial being: Anger, Fear or Love, for example.
During the day the installation rearranges our sound compositions according to it’s state of mind so that on each visit the space feels completely different.The visitors experience interactively a broad set of self-evolving scenarios that range from playful musical compositions up to complex sound experiments.
Moreover, the 3D audio system we've designed and integrated in the ceiling and the mirrors of the room, allowed us to control flying sound objects throughout the space to unfold sound worlds that are constantly in motion.
