The Virtual Phenomatron
To help promote my electropop duo Infernal Devices‘ EP A Million Miles Above, we wanted to create a way for people to listen the new EP in a way that would be a step beyond a simple audio player, while also persuading people to see us perform live with our new lighting rig we called The Phenomatron.
I made an interactive experience for the user where they can control the show in the browser and make the lights on the Phenomatron go along to the music. I used the Soundcloud API to stream the new EP from Soundcloud along with HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery to create the Virtual Phenomatron light up to the users’ keystrokes.
