This project is based on research into early drawn sound techniques in musical score analysis & sound-on-film technology. For example, Daphne Oram’s Oramics, the UPIC devised by Iannis Xenakis, and Fischinger’s Ornament Sound experiments of 1932. The first prototype functions as a sound synthesizer that transforms rendered imagery into sound. The system allows for participants to actively draft an improvised ‘visual score’ by applying and erasing medium on a transparent surface.
