Klangschaukeln (musical swings) in Montreal

Yeah, gleich noch ein cooles Stadtschaukel-Projekt, diesmal in Kanada. Klangschaukel-Installation, bestehend aus 21 Schaukeln, des kanadischen Designkollektivs Daily Tous Les Jours in der Innenstadt von Montreal. Sehr schön.

Every spring, an interactive installation takes over a high-traffic area in Montréal’s Quartier des spectacles and sets a collective ritual. The installation offers a fresh look at the idea of cooperation, the notion that we can achieve more together than separately.

The result is a giant instrument made of 21 musical swings; each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, but some sounds only emerge from cooperation.

The project stimulates ownership of the public space, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds, and creating a place for playing and hanging out in the middle of the city centre.
