︎︎︎Sound Design, Visual Arts

For DDP45133, I undertook the sound design for DDP’s promotional video created by visual designer Kyuha Shim.

The Seoul Design Foundation aims to revitalize the space of Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) through the DDP45133 exhibition, which showcases a pioneering artwork integrating the 12 iconic works of Zaha Hadid, the first female architect to win the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize, with advanced AI technology. The concept involves combining 45,133 DDP aluminum outer walls, each differing in size, angle, and color, into NFTs.

I created immersive ambient drone music for Kyuha Shim’s AI-driven work Graphic Procedure. The sound was synthesized and composed based on my color-sound sonification system.

Use high quality headphones or speakers for better sonic experience.

Sounds of Mars

︎︎︎Visualization, Sonification
︎︎︎Generative, Interactive

Nasa's recording of "Sound of Mars" was converted into a giant monochrome image and then transferred into sound using a raster-based sonification system I developed. The scanning area automatically moves left and right and up and down over the image area. During this, the sonification resolution can be adjusted from 5x5 to 50x50 pixels and 5 representative colors can be selected to change the tonal character of the sound.

Each pixel has a heavily-processed electric guitar sound. The number of voices increases and the pitch and the phase relationship between each voice change according to the number and color of pixels. Also, the sonification time can be warped vertically and horizontally. This applies granular effects to the sound.
