In chanting fog
TEAM: Aidan Cifelli, British , University of Edinburgh
This proposal creates an experience that takes control of all senses and encapsulates the full body.
This design is inspired by the Scottish folklore of ‘ Am Fear Liath Mòr’ – a presence or creature that is said to haunt the summit of Scottish mountains when enveloped by fog. With this ‘presence’ comes an orchestra of sensational sound- ‘chanting fog’
This experience is recreated with a contemporary twist; this is achieved by placing speakers along the ridges and high peaks of the mountains. These speakers will contain sensors that react to moisture in the air, resulting in music being played into the fog.
These speakers will play different genres of music depending on the thickness of the fog and moisture in the air.
With this proposal nature is in control, the environmental conditions decide the music genre that is played, nature is the DJ
This in turn means the music will match the continuously changing surrounding conditions and emotions of the people.
An experience that takes control of all senses and encapsulates the full body.
