Features Overview

LUX investigates the relationship between physics, music, and engineering, which culminates into a public display, or performance, showcasing the wonder and potential of STEM. LUX stems from spectrum frequency analysis and the manipulation of digital data to convert acoustic, analog signals into light.

each frequency emitted from a sound source takes shape into color projected onto public, architectural sites.

a single note

If the musician were to play a single note from any acoustic instrument, a panel of light would shine a certain color.

a triad/chord

If the musician were to play three frequencies (ex. a chord), three different panels of light would shine different colors.

a symphony

If the musician were to play a collection of frequencies simultaneously, they would, in turn, produce a sight so visually stimulating -- all in response to their music.
