Eagle Wu
ParaS

Hou Lam Wu’s Parametric Sound Installation takes a dynamic form with irregular positioning of speakers, enabling sound to be spatialized in an irregular way. A performance with sensors will take place within the installation, controlling the sound movements within the installation. Within the dynamic form created by algorithms, sound movements will follow the form provided by the installation, experimenting with how sound reacts with irregular forms in space. The installation uses a set of custom made fixed dimension speakers, which can be reused in future installations, allowing flexibility of creating new forms while reusing the materials.

Hou Lam Wu’s installation will be live-streamed with 360 video and ambisonic audio, link to be confirmed!
