Conducting Simulator is an installation built for as part of the Bernstein at 100 Centennial Celebration. It was exhibited at Tisch Gala 2018.
The simulator allows the user to experience the expressive control and interpretive agency of an orchestral conductor. Using their right hands to indicate the beat, the audience can control the tempo and phrasing of the music to create a performance of the song Somewhere from "West Side Story".
My role on this project is both designer and developer. Working with Chino Kim, we started from concept sketching, physical space design to software developing, production communication and the final booth installation.
