Sonic Drop

A Water Sensitive Musical Instrument

in collaboration with Cooper Newby, Pablo Castellanos Macin, and Justin Li

Sonic Droplet is an interactive and integrated audio-visual sculpture. Comprised of water activated sensors mounted on a suspended, internally lit cube that glows in response to human interaction with the device. Synthesizing visual art with sound, when the water sensors are activated, Sonic Droplet generates beautiful music. Sonic Droplet was an art installation at Stanford that invited its viewers to wield water toys to collaboratively create mesh of sound and light.
