Quintetto

Quintetto is a music installation by the Italian artist collective Quiet Ensemble that tracks the movement of fish in five vertical tanks and translates their movements into audio.

“Quintetto” is an installation based on the study of casual movement of objects or living creatures used as input for the production of sounds. The basic concept is to reveal what we call “invisible concerts” of everyday life.
 The vertical movements of the 5 fishes in the aquariums is captured by
a videocamera, that translates (through a computer software) their movements in digital sound signals.
We’ll have 5 different musical instruments creating a totally unexpected live concert.
