Mid-project opening: Thursday, 28 June, 6-8pm.

Richard Davis is a digital artist and musician. Recently graduated from the MA in Digital Media Arts at University of Brighton, his practice fuses visual art with his passion for music creating interactive installations and performances using sculpture, found objects and digital technologies.

Guitar Sculpture
The work will be a new version of the guitar sculpture originally shown at Richard’s degree show last year. The work utilises the open source arduino platform with Max/MSP software to control an installation of acoustic guitars, which allows for audience composition through movement sensors. 
The new arrangement of the Guitar Sculpture will offer a new sonic composition written by Richard, allowing the audience to compose and mix the sounds as they choose through triggering selected guitars and their associated tracks.

The workshop to accompany the exhibition will introduce participants to the open source Arduino platform and interactive programming environments such as Max/MSP software & Pure Data, demonstrating basic use of sensors and switches to control light and sound through communication with the computer.
