an interactive sound installation

Five music stands are placed in a semi circle. Big sheets of paper on the stands are slowly moving and soft paper sounds can be heard when the visitor enters. As soon as the visitor approaches the music stands, they softly start to make sounds, which could be associated with “singing” metal. Depending on which direction the visitor walks, these sounds will change. With the technical help of distance sensors, small loudspeakers and fans create an interactive composition can be played by the audience. Every position one takes inside the semi circle of music stands creates its own sound. As soon as the visitor leaves the semi circle, the installation turns back to its point of departure: slowly moving paper sheets and soft paper sounds.
