21 Balançoires – An exercise of musican cooperation

Mouna Andraos y Melissa Mongiat de Daily Tous Les Jours nos presentan esta instalación interactiva en Montreal. Los peatones tienen a su disposición 21 columpios que al moverse se convierten en instrumentos musicales, tanto para adultos como para niños.

«21 Balançoires takes over a newly open space in front of Université du Québec à Montréal’s Science Faculty. Together with Luc-Alain Giraldeau, an animal behaviour professor from the faculty, we explored the topic of cooperation which states that together we achieve better things than separately.»

«The result is a giant collective 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 new 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.»
