Mini Beast kit

Here I collaborated to engineer a circuit that amplifies a microphone to the degree that when a paper surface is touching the microphone, it can detect the sounds of insects walking on the surface.

I then explored linking these inputs of sound into MAX msp – Resolume through a midi controller to then control the pause and play function of a video. The footage chosen to start then a few microseconds later a pause each time essentially an insect ‘took a step’, was of a mutoscope (early form of animation) as the insects animated the frames of the video.
