Synopsis

Have you ever tried making music using a plant?  Developed by Playable Streets "The Plants" is an interactive installation featuring experimental musical instruments that combine live plants with digital sensors. Your skin controls the pitch of each plant instrument, allowing you to play a range of notes when you interact with them. Led by artist facilitators, this interactive installation encourages audience participation, inviting everyone to come and engage in collaborative music-making and interaction with nature. 

 

There will also be live performances from 7.30–8pm, where local musicians join in, integrating their instruments into The Plants' sonic landscape.
