The Lake

We're not sure how it stacks up harmonically against the worm-based MIDI synth, but Julie Freeman's The Lake definitely steps it up a notch. Julie tagge 16 fish in a lake with small acoustic transmitters that ping every two seconds to wireless hydrophones. This information is sent to a machine that triangulates their coordinates, tracks the fishes' movements; this is rendered as a real time animation (see still at right), and generates a soundscape based on seven typical types of fish behavior in the water. Art, dude; it makes you think.
