Generative & Interactive Work
Aaron Hoke Doenges‘ generative and interactive work focuses on data sonification and sharing the creative process. Utilizing the tools of surveillance and data collection, he turns these cultural trends on their heads and uses them in support of collaborative creation rather than social manipulation and control. These works are designed to be installed and played continuously in a variety of spaces and locations.
The Migratory Patterns of People
The Migratory Patterns of People is a generative work based on live GPS data from local transit departments. As the buses drive around the city, GPS data is updated, and the locations determine the pitches and visual patterns of the installation. The transit system turns the city into a musical instrument.

Wade [Music for River and People]
Wade [Music for River and People] is an interactive work using live river flow data from waterdata.usgs.gov and motion sensor data from the installation site. Fundamental pitches fluctuate as the river flow changes, and audio effects are layered on top of the drone as people move throughout the room.
How [Did We Get Here / Time Flies]
How [Did We Get Here / Time Flies] is an interactive work using live flight information and tracking visuals. As people move throughout the installation space, location sensors play a ‘melody’ line.
