In 2014 I transformed the Watford Colosseum into an interactive musical playground, using interactive hand-cranked music machines, Sonic Tubes and Sonic Hairdryers, a program of hidden performers in lifts, stairwells and the ticket box and table-side performances ordered from a menu in the restaurant.
This work is available for adaptation to your venue or event. Please contact me for more information and technical specifications.
Sonic Tubes listen to traffic and dripping water. The audio is heard in the stairwell inside, transformed into a calm and meditative soundscape
‘Eavesdrop’ microphones placed throughout the venue are listening to what’s happening at the various installations. The audio is randomly mixed to speakers in the domes of these hairdryers
A hand-cranked junk-O-matic drum machine that adults seemed to like more than kids…
REEL to REEL
Constantly recording, visitors speak or sing into the old mic and hear themselves played back on a delayed looping echo. Some great performances!
