4gen is a interactive sound installation. It combines dark ambient music with speeches. The intensity of the music depends on the amount of activity in the room. If the activity increases the music becomes more extreme.

The installation uses a webcam sensor. The data of the webcam is analyzed in processing and then send to Pure Data where the sounds are generated. The installation was set up at the entrance of the University of Arts Utrecht.

The project was in collaboration with, Ward Slager, Chris Mollee and Jacob Schwartz.

The code for the project can be found here.
