Storm King was composed and performed with “The Sonic Wire Sculptor,” originally a personal instrument created by Pitaru to compose, record and perform music. Pitaru later transformed the software into a public installation to allow a wider range of users to intuitively interact with the instrument. Gallery visitors would enter a dark room with a surround-sound system, a projection and a unique drawing station. Participants were encouraged to add their work to a steadily growing collection of beautiful and surprising sonic-sculptures. Today, this collection includes work from professional illustrators, poets, 9-year-olds and their parents, and musicians of various genres.
