The Entwerfen I course (IG2, w/ Prof. Michael Götte) is part of the foundation courses in curriculum of the “Interaktionsgestalter” program. The course tries to teach the students in a very general way methods of spatial organisation of elements and layout, independent of dimension and media. So it was very obvious to extend in this time the communication media from a normal screen to other media like light and LEDs.

Briefing
The Students have to visualize a 20 to 30 secs long track of instrumental music. The Visualisation have to be based on a parameter system to meet objective and subjective criteria. The goal is to translate the syntax of the chosen instrumental into a readable visual equivalent.
