The Macula have just installed a new work and this time instead of mapping architectural details they have turned them into a virtual instrument. Visitors can create music with the chapel by using laser pointers to trigger various sounds that are linked to each element. Introducing the Archifon

Archifon is a big interactive virtual musical instrument originally made for the Olomouc Baroque de-baptized chapel. Architectonical objects are re-interpreted by virtual visual elements via projection and sound. It is possible by mapping the virtual surface on the chapel’s interior. Up to ten visitors at a time can interact with the Archifon through the laser pointers. By pointing on any of more than 100 elements different audiovisual actions are initiated.”
