Looks Like Music by Yuri Suzuki

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Looks Like Music - Mudam 2013 from Yuri Suzuki on Vimeo.

The Looks Like Music project by sound artist and designer Yuri Suzuki features robots that are programmed to follow a black line drawn on white paper. They each respond with specific sounds as they pass over coloured marks laid down across the track by visitors.

The public is invited to actively contribute to the development of the installation in the exhibition space by extending the circuit drawn on paper,” said Suzuki. “Visitors thus participate in the creation of a large-scale artwork and enrich a collectively composed sound piece.”
