Flood the Box

Flood the Box is an interactive sound sculpture that explores the use of water as an input medium for generative music, harnessing the sonic complexity offered by digital audio software with a hardware interface featuring minimal user control - freeing the computer musician from the shackles of the musical grid.


Three burettes drip water onto a plate - the droplets from each are picked up as signals via a capacitive sensor and processed by a bespoke Pure Data patch that generates MIDI data to control sounds in Ableton Live.


Depending on the flow of the burettes - in relation to themselves and one another, different sounds can be triggered and muted.
