panGenerator based in Poland have created a new kinetic audio video sculpture for Disney that takes the form of a Mickey Mouse inspired installation, which can be seen in action in the video embedded below.
Named the MICKEYPHON the installation has been created to listen for sounds in its surroundings and will then rotate into the direction. It then samples them to create and playback rhythmic patterns based upon the sound that it has heard.
Its developers explain a little more about the inspiration and functionality of this very unique interactive kinetic installation.
The visuals displayed on the custom cylindrical RGB LED matrix are audio-reactive, tightly integrated with the music output of the installation. The piece invites both children and adults to experiment with creating sounds using their voices,
clapping their hands or using the provided instruments and observe their influence on the kinetic, visual and audiatory output of the sculpture.
