Greetings! Christopher Baker sent me here. My name is Risa Recio, I am currently a Post-Bacc in the PTDW department and am to the Art and Technology department for some insight. I don’t know anyone in the Art and Tech department so I was hoping you could perhaps recommend a student I could reach out to or perhaps a faculty member.
I am interested in lighting an installation wherein the light would pulse to an audio track. I have done some research into it, and there are “music sensitive LEDs”, but I don’t think that is what I am after. I have an audio track of sheet rock being hammered at I would want the lights to pulse with the hammer sound specifically, not the other noises (my breathe, my footsteps, etc.). In my research I have found several DIY directions, but I’m not sure which will work best for my project.
All this is very new to me, but I was hoping to realize this project for the Post-Bacc show which opens June 9th. I feel very lost in this new and strange endeavor (Arduinos? coding? soldering?), if you have any recommendations as to who I should talk to who might be able to give me some direction, I would really appreciate it. I am more than happy to provide them coffee for a bit of their time and expertise!
