Another formidable work by foci+loci, Bouncing Moon is an algorithmic music device built in LittleBigPlanet 3. Truly avantgarde.
As the Brooklyn-based duo explains:
The user trigger emission of a triangle in any of four rows- percussion, droplets, bass and piano- by pressing buttons on the controller. Each triangle has three possible notes and plays whichever one lands point-down in the slot it finds. The moving white light indicates what step the sequencer is on. As it passes each triangle, it triggers a note. The user can also, 'reset' any row by thrusting them back upwards to resettle as they fall. The tempo is also controllable.
Treating the map editors in video games as virtual sound stages, foci + loci create immersive electro-acoustic spaces with virtual instruments and timed audiovisual events. Saving and replaying digital game data, camera movement in space can be disassociated from time, changing traditional filmic relationships. foci + loci is Tamara Yadao and Chris Burke.
