From Sound to Light, By Talking to Walls

Everyone has experienced an echo - a sound reverberating and bouncing off an object back to its original source. Echoes happen both in natural and urban settings, whether it’s someone shouting triumphantly into a canyon or the simple sound of traffic in a tunnel. Now, imagine what it would be like to be able to see what the sound waves of an echo look like. Murmur is a device that does exactly that, on a higher level: it collects sounds made physically by people and visualizes them virtually on a LED wall.

Created through the collaboration of four different French studios (Chevalvert, 2roqs, Polygraphik and Splank), the installation sets out to bridge the gap between physical and virtual worlds. Each studio contributed their own expertise in visual design, object design, sound design and programming to bring the project to life. What Murmur essentially does is simulate the transformation sound waves into light waves. By speaking into the “Echo Chamber” of the device, the ‘murmurs’ of the public and passers-by are collected and transmitted through a cord onto the LED wall. The animations focus on movement, reacting differently to different types of sound. The resulting effect is magical indeed, creating a new dialogue between the movement of the public and the architecture of the room.
