Eric Rieper - Selected Works Portfolio
Wake Up With the World is a collaborative experience. When you wake your GPS coordinates are translated into musical notes and combined with those of every other person waking up at the same moment as you. All these notes are combined and the song you wake to is composed of the presence of everyone else doing the same.
Each participant becomes a unique instrument in the composition, taking one of four roles: lead, bass, chords, or percussion. As more people join the length of the composition increases, as does the tempo of the music and the root note that the song is based off of.
Wake Up With the World is part of Functional Embrace, Eric Rieper's exhibition to be debuted at the Pratt Institute Department of Digital Arts gallery on April 14th, 2014.
The Functional Embrace display of Wake Up With the World will cache activity over the course of the exhibition and compose a constantly updating piece of music of that week.
