Sonic Pendulum is a soundscape created by Yuri Suzuki Design Studio and QOSMO in 2017. The artificial intelligence part of Sound Pendulum utilizes the atmosphere around it to create sounds of harmony. These sounds are created using speakers and pendulums. The pendulums allow the doppler effect to help dictate the music. Every sound it creates is a response to what is around it, so the harmonies never repeat and continuously alter. I admire this project because of its interactive element and its mellifluous element. The environment can easily soothe a stressed person (I wish I could benefit from its atmosphere at this moment). A deep learning algorithm was used in this project that was trained with compositions and could be changed given the people and noises around it. The project embodies the artist’s ideas of order coming from chaos.
