503 cluster waves

Audiovisual installation with musical material sequenced by cosmological data. 

Premiered during the Transpositions DA TA conference 2017 october 4-6 in MDT, Stockholm.

Data is collected from the largest objects in the universe – galaxy clusters. The data is collected with x-ray sensors on satellites orbiting earth. The data itself is used as musical material to drive sound and light synthesis. The ”geometrical” data such as distance and location of the galaxy clusters are used to setup the installations main instruments. The x-ray images are used as a type of score for playing the installation.

The installation is using a sound technique inspired by wave field synthesis, with a row of many loudspeakers. And a precisely synced lighting system to both heighten the aural experience and also make the visual element become musical and almost aural enitity.

On a technical note: a row of 24 loudspeakers and projection. Sound and visuals generates in real time.


Audiovisual installation


An audiovisual installation that explores the in-between of sound, music, movable images and out experience of these senses. With an integration of the audial and visual medias – on equal terms – a music for the eyes and images for the ear emerges – and something else in between. 

The installation was made for the venue Audiorama in Stockholm, and premiered during the festival Stockholm Music & Arts 2015. 

- The installation is available to show at galleries, art shows or music festivals.

- It is available for stereo or quad sound systems.

- Requires a high end sound system with subwoofers that fills the room with a powerful loud volume. 

- The projector should be a 16:9 placed in a portrait mode (90 degrees tilted)

- The projector should be perceived as very powerful, and should be at least 6000 Ansilumen, and more for bigger rooms. 

- The projection surface should be a projection screen (preferable PVC non transparent) or a white wall. 


Review of Dimension Oblique in "Miljömagasinet" (Translated from Swedish):

About the art of the festival Stockholm Music & Arts: "Best was Marcus Wrangö's sound- and video-installation that explores the edge in between audio and the moving image and our perception of these questions. Sinewaves got transferred into vertical and horizontal lines. Like some kind of synesthesia as sound in image or vice versa. The edge became the personal experience. Most people could stand it for a couple of minutes."
