Swarm Light elevates audio visualization to art
The Random International design studio debuts its latest interactive light sculpture "Swarm Light," which transforms sound into animated light.
Comprised of hundreds of LEDs that are physically linked with polished brass and electronically linked by micro controllers, Swarm Light takes audio visualization into the real world using three 3D grids of lights.
Interactivity is based around embedded microphones that pick up nearby sounds. The audio is processed in real time by software and transformed into corresponding light animations that float above you like swarms of choreographed fireflies. The effect is breathtaking.
