Final Project Proposal

Final Project: Voice Modulator


My plan is to construct a voice-changing mask that is synced to LED’s contained within the mask, in the hopes of it being used during future musical performances. Alongside being functional, this mask will contain highly sculptural elements that will serve to create a defined, recognizable character. This project draws on the work of several different artists and musicians as influence, and looks to mesh different aspects of cyberpunk and traditional fantasy aesthetics.
