AF595 is a permanent sound and light installation at Antfood Music and Sound in Brooklyn. Installed in the ceiling of a long hallway that connects the entire recording studio, the piece includes 595 floating points of light, each full color and individually addressable. The overall shape of the sculpture is based on the physical acoustics of Antfood’s two main recording spaces.
Animations are controlled via a custom control panel in the hallway, allowing users to dial different scenes and change scenic parameters on the fly. Live sound in the studio can also drive content across the piece.
Designed, built, installed, and programmed by Gabe Liberti, Dave Rife, Zach Dunham, and Kevin Siwoff.
