Dezeen Music Project: French artist Bertrand Lanthiez created this audiovisual installation by projecting white light along criss-crossing woollen threads (+ movie).

Called Sounds of Threads, the installation comprises strands of wool stretched between four wooden stands, with beams of white light projected across them in time to a piece of music.

"I was interested in questions of how sight can enhance hearing, or also disturb our balance in perceiving a multimedia-based bodily experience," said Lanthiez.

"I tried to demonstrate the power of our senses when they interact simultaneously," he added.

Lanthiez composed an original piece of music to use in the installation, which he exhibited earlier this year in Reykjavik.

  • Just Imagine….

    I would love to have it slowly pulsing to the sound of sea waves gently washing on a night time beach. It would help me put away my phone for once and fall asleep happily.

    Interesting thinking. We did similar in our project. We were trying to make a responsive structure, which reacted in real time with music. We thought about using threads, but in the and we come up with a “cloud” idea. We try to make interactive projections as well. Here is our project: http://www.zaarchitects.com/en/other/113-interactive-cloud.html

    We use motors and Arduino to activate the structure. https://vimeo.com/69996476
