Developed for Popkalab in collaboration with Bless.

The hammock has embedded sensors to detect the person on the hammock and the swinging on the hammock and plays music based on this. I have developed the wireless sensing system with custom pressure sensors and accelerometers and the software infrastructure in SuperCollider for the mapping of the sensor data to the sound.
