Interdisciplanary design studio Arcade works at the intersection of digital and physical to expose new opportunities from emerging technologies. Members James Alliban, William Coleman and Keiichi Matsuda created a laser installation to accompany Stravinsky’s The Rite Of Spring.

The music at a concert was turned into a sea of sound and light, with each laser connected to an individual instrument. The louder a musician played, the brighter that respective beam became.

Arcade’s sound-responsive sculptural laser installation was performed with the North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra. Fifty lasers were installed in the auditorium, which responded to what each musician played. This turned the entire auditorium into a dynamic forest of sound and light.

The project was produced by the Groninger Forum, as part of Timeshift 2013, a festival celebrating the 100th anniversary of Stravinsky’s famous composition. You can check it out in the video below:
