IoT is a concert composed by Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta based on the Internet of Things. In one of the busiest downtown areas of Lisbon, Rua Garrett, and Largo do Chiado, 431 hotspots were detected. These Internet nodes determined the structure and sounds of the concert.
IoT – Internet of Things – was inspired by Cerveira Pinto’s concept of Second City.
