    Ether Island is an interactive sound installation that creates sonic spaces of the sounds human ear cannot normally register if unarmed: solar wind, satellite signal, communication between two radios on air; and invites visitors to make gestures with their hands to explore relations between sound and movement. According to Konstantin Tsiolkovsky ether island - is all the known universe in present future and past. Software gets skeleton data of a visitor and transmits it to sound engine, which generates speech sounds and noises depending on the position of visitor’s hands. It is achieved by using infrared body tracking sensors (currently Microsoft Kinect) along with sound synthesis and processing algorithms implemented in Max.
