Jardín Sonoro: An automated sound garden

Jardín Sonoro is a garden set up for listening experiences. It is located at the Fonoteca Nacional in Mexico City.

The project consists of an eight-channel audio system that plays scheduled pieces throughout the day, but only when listeners are present within the confines of the garden. The system detects people through eight different cameras which are placed at different strategic locations. It was developed with MAX, using Javascript for dynamic program creation and Jitter for motion detection.

My role in this project was designing and installing the sensing system, as well as developing the automation software.
