redlight haze:  "A portion of the facade is overlaid with a grid of red LEDs, which change lightness or pattern according to real-time sound analyses. This interface between architecture and the by-passers is created by the relationship between common sound sources (the voices of passers-by, the noise generated by local traffic) and the programme that regulates the transformation."


"Le poulpe (the octopus) is an analogical and digital organism living in a network. Each branch constitutes a sonic installation which, out of a specific location, collects its own locally generated sound effects, transforms them via a digital automaton into a new arrangement of sounds. The outcome is then broadcast locally, through loud speakers, and on the Net, through streaming. Le Poulpe belongs in the city, where people live and make noise. It gives a virtual body to this city, expressing through sounds its invisible mouvements and its continuous flows."  Apo33
