Space Octave > Newcastle > 2020
A polyphonic playground- an interactive play experience where families work together to create a musical soundscape.
Eight coloured floor pads produce sounds and rhythms that can then be shaped using a series of interactive objects scattered around the space. Playful interaction with these elements will effect the sound by changing parameters like pitch, reverb and delay. The installation is designed to be intuitive with no technical knowledge required to enjoy.
Space Octave was chosen as part of the MAPS Festival 2020 Open Call commission process in partnership BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art. The commission is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
