This is a project for the University of Florida's Transdisciplinary seminar: a graduate course integrating Graduate Composition, Digital Media, and Sculpture students. The collaborative efforts between Composer/Sculpture student, Paul Pino, and composer/engineer, Chester Udell, resulted in new monocord resonators for the MIRAG built using Plexiglas, steel, and a laser cutter. The sound from the MIRAG is amplified, transposed down 2 octaves using realtime FFT, and sent to a subwoofer driving non-Newtonian fluid (designed by Paul Pino). This creates a realtime visualization in the fluid's wave patterns of what the MIRAG is playing. The cohesive system results in what we call the Hydra,the mythological three-headed water serpent.
