Radiorator

Radiorator is an experimental sound performance. Is the result of the expanded perception generated by capturing radio frequencies through a technological helmet designed and manufactured digitally. The wearable works as a portable device that allows listening to the wide spectrum of radio frequencies. Equipped with an antenna, it receives the frequencies that are around it, allowing it to interact with the environment. Radio frequencies are digitally decoded into sounds and with these, I perform creating an experimental audio piece, using the loudness of the radio frequencies that  capture at the moment. 

Using the sound of radio frequencies (which he captures live with the helmet) as raw material, I generate a live piece that becomes experimental electronic music. Oscillating between ambient and techno, the sounds invites deep and introspective listening.

The helmet is a portable device that captures radio waves (electromagnetic waves from 3 to 300 Gh) and converts them into sound and image. This wearable uses an antenna, a raspberry to convert analog to digital signals. Radio frequencies are picked up by the antenna and then digitally decoded into sounds and images via Raspberry pi.

Morphologically following the guidelines of the constructivist movement, which proposes three-dimensionality as the leading axis and geometric rigor, the design of the helmet takes a semi-circular module that is repeated scaled around a concentric axis. The main intention is to represent in forms, the expansive effect of sound waves.

The 3D printing technology was used to materialize the helmet. The final piece is built through modules and a fit system between the hull and the geometry that emerges from it.
