A Falling Line is an interactive installation that creates responsive sound from participant's drawing on a black wall. In the form of white line, the drawing represents the waveform of the created sound. Audiences move a computer mouse to elongate the line but no modification or deletion of the existing line is allowed. To ensure the standard CD-quality sound (44100 kHz, 16 bit), a special electronics were used to extract the raw output from a high performance mouse. In terms of technology, this work demonstrates a novel concept of creating digital sound. In terms of artistic expression, the interaction provides high tension to the audience when trying to create some kind of meaningful sound from the irreversible drawing.
