Aural Borealis

An installation selected for the 2018 Pickathon Festival - this project consisted of 9 custom-cast stepping stones housing contact switches and LEDs, each triggering a unique sound played via scripts written for PyGame, a sound and gaming library running on a raspberry Pi. The LEDs were controlled by Fade Candy, a software / hardware neopixel driver, and the sounds were recorded by John Waley. Group members include John Brown, Emma Follender, John Farrell, and producer Stephanie Lanning.

TEAM: John Brown, John Farrell, Emma Follender, John Waley, Stephanie Lanning, Kate Wolf
