Caruso's Dream (2014)
A permanent, site-specific public artwork by artists Brian Goggin and Dorka Keehn in downtown San Francisco. In collaboration with the artists, I created musical light compositions synchronized to the original recordings of Enrico Caruso. To realize these compositions, I created custom software in Max, Processing, and ChucK. I also integrated the hardware system to control the lights, which plays back the compositions in sync with music broadcast on a low power FM transmitter. The piece will be unveiled on February 23, 2014.
