supernatant is an audiovisual installation created by Nic de Cosson and Brent Lee. The piece began with video recordings of a frog in a swimming pool and 4-channel audio recordings of the same neighborhood at night. In supernatant, a Max patch tracks the movement of the frog in the video, superimposes graphics onto the video that follow the frog,, and maps the relative position of the frog onto aspects of the multi-channel spatialization and processing of live or recorded sound, all in real time. The installation is constructed such that the video is projected onto the floor from above in a space surrounded by loudspeakers; one channel of the sound follows the frog as it swims about.
