Baroque Architecture and Laser Pointers Create Interactive Music

Archifon I., a "virtual musical instrument," allows the audience to "play" sounds by directing laser pointers at architectural elements inside the Olomouc (de-baptized) Baroque chapel. Up to 10 laser pointers can trigger sound and video via over 100 ornate sculptures, paintings, and columns. The interactive environment is the brainchild of two Czech mutlimedia artists, Tomáš Dvorák, a composer and musician, and Daniel Gregor, an animator with the projection mapping group the MaculaDvorák's latest album is available here
