Some pictures of Portification (formally known as Sonifying Porto).

The prototype version consisted of 5 FSRs and 2 ribbon sensors that were glued on an alternative map of Porto and a webcam that was placed above the map.

For each FSR the audience could trigger 3 sounds (recorded at the same location) depending on the amount of pressure executed. For each ribbon sensor 5 sounds could be triggered depending on the position of the finger on the ribbon.

The webcam tracked the movement from the audience when they moved from one sensor to another and the sound evolved depending on that position. Unfortunately the light conditions were not optimal and the tracking could not be optimised.

We will continue to develop this prototype and further explore interface possibilities and the real-time modification of the sounds.
