This piece is about the joy of human expression through music, inviting users to actively and simultaneously participate in both performance and musical composition. A projection offers immediate visual feedback in which specific musical elements are mapped to simple objects on the wall. Four sensors suspended from the ceiling read users' heights, which then correspond to the tone in a chord. Eight sensors along the wall match the beats in a rhythm. Essentially, the work is a room-sized musical instrument. Human presence and collaboration are required to compose a song.
The piece is part of a larger collection of virtual musical instruments which can be found online at repercussion.org
