FluxXR

FluxXR is a prototype mixed reality (MR) experience blending augmented graphical sonic data onto the iconic vinyl record turntable. The work takes the form of a smartphone/tablet app and aims to explore tension between analogue and digital technologies, fusing temporalities through the merging of past media with contemporary innovation.

A cyclical waveform graphic emanates from the stylus of the record player, following its mechanical motion and simultaneously reacting to the real time audio output. Sonic analysis of the frequency and amplitude informs both the colour and movement of this augmented waveform, bringing a dynamic visual representation of the record’s audio content.
