AQT_16 uses audio from the Apollo and other NASA missions to create a series of towers, a cityscape based on pitch and volume. A fleeting, imaginary space habitat to draw eyes and thoughts upwards once again.
Rapidly brought into existence in response to a call for entries, the piece grabs a 15 second sample from an audio stream to draw a series of towers which are scaled and coloured according to pitch and volume. There is an interesting anomaly, never tracked down, which occasionally throws out a bright blue tower.
AQT_16 is included in the book ‘Written Images’, a generative book of generative art by Martin Fuchs and Peter Bichsel.
