An installation for 3 cities: Audio-Visual Installation with Live Percussionist at The Cass.

play_algorithm. is a collaborative installation by multimedia artist Alice Emily Baird and composer Chatori Shimizu, connecting and contrasting the cultural differences in the participants' reaction to sound in an acousmatic space. Participants' movements are anonymously captured and followed by two digital video cameras for a real-time algorithm used in the installation.

This installation has previously been installed at the Computer Music Center at Columbia, New York City, NY, and the National Institute of Informatics, Karuizawa, Japan.
