Barcelona, june, 11 2009. The 16º Barcelona’s International Festival of Advance Music and Multimedia Art, Sonar, involved in this editions and in concrete in the “Mecanics” exposition of Sonarmática, universities institutions, like the Istituto Europeo di Design of Barcelona, to incorporate their creative contents.

The “Mecanics” exposition, that occupies all the first floor of the CCCB, undertakes the fascinating World of the musical instrument built from the robotics and the technology under the theme “Do It Yourself” (Hazlo Tú Mismo).

The installation Voice Constructor, Develop under these criteria, is the result of a multidisciplinary project made by the student of Video Design, Media Design and Graphic Design courses of the IED Barcelona.

Voice Constructor is a puzzle and an interactive construction game though so that a minimum of two people can play. Through the voice, one build the geometric pieces which completes the different drawings on a big screen and the second player, with the help of a wii control, can displace them and rotate them on a second screen of 4,80x2,5m completing the puzzle.
Inspired on the tangram games and the children games colour pieces, Voice Constructor propose an experience, directed to the wide audience of Sonar, that follows the premises of the festival: do it yourself y hand made. The result is an innovative exercise of a multimedia experiment that goes around 3 axes: the sound, the image and the interaction, translated in terms of the human voice, geometric shapes and expression games (voice and body).

Is a multidisciplinary work of similar complexity to the production of a videogame, in which they take part a script, investigation, conceptual analysis, production of story-boards, graphic design, processing (programming language) and animation motion graphics….

In addition, Voice Constructor also participates in the new section of this festival, SonarKids, that will permit the kids to approached and interact in a creative and amusing way to a new means to understand the instrumentation and the musical composition, so that they can learn while they observe, they listen or they manipulate some of the interfaces, new software and actual installations in the exposition.
