CRYSTAL is a live experience through microstructures.

CRYSTAL analyzes and samples the solid vibrations incoming from the human touch and transforms them, in real-time, into a digital audiovisual signals. A crystal structure is a unique arrangement of atoms describing a highly ordered structure, occurring due to the intrinsic nature of its constituents to form symmetric patterns. 

Sounds can travel at approximately 6000 metres per second in some solids. Vibrating effects are more easily passed on from one molecule to the next when they are in close proximity. The frequency of a vibration, is simply the number of to and from movements made in each second. A greater frequency than this will produce a higher-pitched note and so on.
