Sonic Heatmap, 2008 b.Tween Conference

Sonic Heatmap, 2008 b.Tween Conference

Manchester Museum of Science and Technology,
Manchester, UK
18–20 June 2008

Teaming up with conference hosts b.Tween, Illustrious created a live generative 3D soundscape for this major creative conference hosted at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry.

Based in the main auditorium of the conference, the 3D soundscape was played constantly but subtly in the background and was triggered by the delegates themselves. 

Using a heat map of the connections made between people at the conference, different sounds were triggered and played back in the correct geographical location relative to where the encounter occurred within the museum.

In partnership with b.Tween and the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry.
