Nomadic Sound Systems

Nomadic sound system is a family of objects formed from wireless, battery powered, portable speakers designed to explore new ways for sound to interact with people and space. The project borrows from the typology of a marching band with the pieces intended to be used together, each responsible for one part of the audible experience.

Adding the capability of human controlled movement to the components of a sound system opens up a new set of possibilities for the performance of electronic music, by enabling the use of location, narrative, and choreography in humanistic surround sound.
