An experimental modular textile interface for sonic interactions, exploring aesthetics and morphology on contemporary interaction design. Trigger pads and fader board are screen printed modules focused on AV performances, allowing the performer to build its set up regarding its needs.
Sound is a medium that has been increasingly gaining ground in the visual arts during recent decades, despite this seeming contradictory. Technology plays one of the main roles in this multidisciplinary crossover, allowing not only for this amalgamation of the visual and auditory practices, but to further our ventures into how do we form this experience and with what tools do we design this multifaceted, polysensorial undertaking. Liquid MIDI is an experimental textile interface for sonic interactions.

This Exhibition, explores the ways in which spaces, environments, and everyday experiences are shaped by sound. As this exhibition demonstrates, sound is not merely a backdrop to the unfolding of our daily routines; rather, it is a central element that is shaped by culture and shapes it in turn.The exhibition Seeing Sound Objects,
co-curated for the Design Museum examined this idea through various sound objects, materials and new ways to listen to sound.

from the curtorial text: ‘It is difficult to resist the temptation offered by a large seashell, which seduces us to listen to the “sounds of the sea.” The experience of feeling the shell in one’s hand, holding it close to one’s ear, and succumbing to its sound has a magical quality, while the impression that we are listening to sounds captured within the shell provokes a sense of wonder, even though we know that this is factually incorrect. That is the power of sound – at once mystical and scientific, immediate and total. Sound is capable of inviting listeners on a journey through the realms of both the real and the abstract, and of impacting both subjective experience and the environment in which it unfolds.”
