Sync/Lost: an Immersive, Multi-User Visualization of Music History :: Sync/Lost [3bits.net] is a multi-user data visualization installation that allows users to become immersed in the history of electronic music. Starting from a complex timeline, user interactivity allows rhythms and sub-rhythms to merge into new sounds. The user interaction is accomplished with wiimote controls, wireless handheld pointers which are relatively easy to use and learn. The audible feedback is provided via wireless headphones.
The project’s objective is to create an interface where people can explore all the connections between the main styles of electronic music through both visual and audible feedback. The interaction with the resulting network graph leads to “a collective consequence in the spatial visualization of information”. [From infosthetics.com.
