Every person is assigned their own synth pad, which only plays while they are inside the audio installation. To accomplish this, two sensors are used, one at the entrance and one at the exit. Further sound effects (for example cracking branch, short arpeggio, …) are triggered by stepping on piezo sensors scattered on the ground. All sensors are connected to an Arduino board, sending information to a special MaxForLive-patch responsible for triggering clips in the corresponding Ableton Live session.
