Misled Bayonets is a Portland OR based Deaf musician and interaction designer also known as Myles de Bastion who has long dreamed of #seeingsound.
Misled Bayonets can be described as a multi-sensory performing art experience, providing sound textures through an improvisational post-rock framework in tandem with an immersive array of self-designed sculptural lighting arrays built in partnership with CymaSpace, that translates audio information into color and movement.
Modular Cymatic Pipes & Triangles is an interactive LED-based installation that conveys the experience of sound and music as light, color and movement. It has been featured at OMSI After Dark: Science of Sound, PDX Pop Now! & PDX Winter Light Festival and more. The piece consists of hand-built, geometric arrays of equilateral triangles. The installation listens in real-time and intelligently responds with colorful animations reacting to ambient sounds, or the performance of participants who directly interact with the piece. Different sounds translate to different light movement patterns and colors providing a visual representation of audio dynamics and timbre that is both descriptive and compelling.
“Nebule” by Ari Freitag”After intuitively creating abstract compositions in ink, I searched them for looming clouds, brackish water, mossy forest floors, bone fragments, sun-bleached seaweed. I brought these organic forms and landscapes to the fore by carving tiny portholes around them or outlining their hazy shapes, to create something both alluring and vaguely threatening. ”
“Out of Hand” by Ripple in Line (Lindsey Dole and Nik O’Hara)
“Exploring the desire of looking to the past for comfort when the speed of modern civilization becomes overwhelming. From hieroglyphics to emoticons, symbolism has been the voice that is understood through every age and language. We aim at getting to the root of a thought or an idea by illustrating it in the simplest of forms.”
“Body Language” by Mutant Forest
Mutant Forest invites you to experience Body Language; the interactive audio visual installation. A space in which your movements are transformed into an immersion of sound and light.
