Interactive Installations: Music, Movement & Light

Free Entry! Discover 3 fascinating and quirky electronic sound installations by composer Jonathan Nangle:

  • Spiral: Spiral sets out to make your head spin. Marbles embedded inside copper spirals whirl about your head creating a sweeping, twisting surround-sound experience like no other.
  • Trip the Light Fantastic: Discover how light can make delicate music using energy gathered by solar cells. Trip the Light Fantastic is an installation that uses energy from the sun, gathered and stored in circuitry and used to trigger hammers striking bells. The piece relies on natural light to create an ever-shifting soundscape of bell like music.
  • Quintet: Have you ever wondered what it is like to be one of the musicians onstage, right in the mix of things, listening and reacting to the players around you? Quintet is an interactive sound installation that allows you to do just that! 
    Want to know what the TUBA player is doing? – Then take his seat!
    Want to hear how the FRENCH HORN interacts with the two TRUMPET players? Well then rustle up two friends and find out!

Children and grown-ups will be equally intrigued and delighted. Come on down and have a play with them... you know you want to!
