Interactive Installation: 83,7 Kilo Ohm

I stumbled on this installation by Erwin Stache (his page is here, but it’s in German) and I loved the way it encourages public “performance.” I have a thing for both public outreach (as I am a music educator) and composition (as I can’t hack it in the world of performance anyway) and I thought the work blended the two elegantly. Any person can create a unique array of sounds, and I really like that it inspires interpersonal contact to create even more sounds and experiences for both the “performers” and “listeners.” Given the incredible elitism that traditional Western classical music often engenders, I love anything and everything that reaches out to the public and encourages music-making.
