Fibonacci Microtonal Music

January 23, 2017 - January 30, 2017
Monday, January 23, 2017 (All day) - Monday, January 30, 2017 (All day)

CalArts, Wave Cave

MUSIC: The installation consists of a live, audio-visual projection of a Fibonacci-based microtonal composition, served in YouTube. The code generates an infinite flow of sound based on the Fibonacci series. It would take more than 1 million years to hear a repeated group of 5 notes. The video shows all the notes that the code produces in realtime.
