Excuse Me!

Installation premiered at ICAD 2006.

Excuse Me! is an installation built around ideas of embodied social creativity. Agents listening to their environment try and recreate their aural stimuli through a matching process between feature extraction of incoming audio to their own internal database of sounds. Errors in matching and a limited but up dateable internal database lead to a miscommunication between the agents and their environment which allows for a evolving sonic structure to occur.
