Octopus Collective - Sound Garden
Octopus Collective have commissioned a special Gigzine system to run in their park setting. As well as an archive of events we will create a "Sound Garden" in the gardens of Barrow Park. These images are of a day testing the system. We had to put the very expensive powered speakers into several bin bags due to the rain!
Audiences can use their mobile device to select an audio track and a speaker to play it on. The system can play up to 30 sounds per speaker at once so you can create a layered sonic experience. Octopus will commision their Artists in Residence to add or prune the garden. Watch out for new screen shots as the project develops.
The system's interaction has been designed so that more than one person can play at a time! Allowing for the contemplative solo performance and group improvisation.
