Gilbert aka Autr
Q. Is it audio reactive?
A. It used to be, but he noticed it’s better if he reacts to the sound manually, because the way we feel sound is different from how FFT “perceives” sound.
Working on a theatrical performance.
A small phone-booth like space in which a person sits. There’s a window with a slanted glass showning a peppers-ghost effect (text floats in the air). The person chats (voice) with an AI. The AI is quite eloquent and tries to create a story collaboratively with the person sitting in the booth.
