A basic interface. It catches acclamation and visualises the sound level
as a graph on the screen. When the graph reaches to a certain level, the
show will start or a directive door in CG will open.
As a substitute for acclamation, the direction is decided upon actinometry
of "camera flash" which the audience bring on. An applicative
event of that had been done before. For choosing the direction, the audience
with their "mirrors" caught laser ray irradiated from the stage,
and returned the reflection to the Light Sensor set on the stage.
An application of the Light Sensor. A weather balloon is thrown to auditorium
where the laser beams netted over the hall. When the beams are intercepted,
a sampler linked the Light Sensor will make sounds. So the audience pass
the balloon to each other for playing music.
A wearable musical instrument developed by YAMAHA. It makes sounds along
with wearer's movement. The output sounds gear to CG on the screen.
An original instrument developed by Hirasawa. It is the device to play
a sampling machine. Some iron pipes are juxtaposed like a pipe organ.
The pipes are engaged with an electronic keyboard. It also gears to the
Voice Sensor, and energy is charged according as an acclamation level.
In 1998, the experimental live show 'WORLD CELL' was put on. It actualised
a new event let home audience in on the show. Using the Internet, they
did "bridge-building" on the screen in the concert hall.
In process of the show,
there were several points that you reached cliffs. Between the way
to the cliff and the next one, the home audience who were named
'Bridge Guild to Relieve' commanded "bridge-building"
to the computer in the hall via the Internet. The commanded computer
by the Guilders built the bridges gradually. During the show, those
scenes had been projected on the screen in the hall.
bridge reached the farther shore with no accident, the story proceeded
to the next. Moreover, the Guilders chose the shore, in the right
or left, and competed which side reached first. Then the story went
on to the faster side.
