Configuration and content scheduling tool for a generative media installation

Description

Custom backend service and configuration interface to set the parameters and manage the content of a generative audio-visual installation. The installation is controlled through a number of MQTT topics, which can be manipulated via a web application. Admin users can access the entire functionality, whereas regular user roles can only access a subset.
