Projects - The Sound of Emotion

The Sound of Emotion


Officially selected prototype for the 2015 San Francisco "Market Street Prototyping Festival" sponsored by the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the San Francisco Planning Department, and the James L. Knight Foundation.

Pillitteri created an installation that housed four iPads, each representing a different musical instrument plus each iPad having the ability to detect a participant's facial expression. The end results encouraged complete strangers to step up to any iPad and collaborate with other participants to create music based solely on their emotions.
