Nodes is a reactive, spatial sound installation developed at the University of Sussex in 2016. It consists of a reconfigurable network of sound nodes which participants are invited to interact with. Each node takes the form of a tangible cube-shaped speaker, emitting a sonic response, which is defined in real-time by their individual location and proximity within the confines of the installation space.With the parameters of the sonic data computationally coupled to each physical node, users are able to reposition them, as they simultaneously become both controllers and emitters of sound. This allows for a distributed and decentralized method of controlling the immediate sonic environment, and also enables both individual and shared experiences to be accomodated.
