The project aims to highlight the dying sounds of nature in urban environments. The installation replaces human/machine-made sounds with the sounds of nature on a projected live image from Warsaw Metro. By adopting Touch Designer and Kinect the new projected interactive space enables anyone to explore an urban setting replaced with sounds from a natural habitat, including sounds of leaves, birds, and others.

How does it work?

We started by going to a station and listening to the sounds of that area. Then, we made a trip around the city to find uninterrupted sounds, record them, and put them into Ableton live, where we edited them. After that, we took a video of a metro station, and using Touch designer and Kinect, we created an interactive installation that uses body movement in a marked area.
