'The Musical Swings'
Please note, this event has expired.
“The Musical Swings” is an installation by Daily tous les jours.
“The Musical Swings,” by Canadian artist collaborative, Daily tous les jours, returned this year to the Green Box Arts Festival.
In 2014, the Green Box Arts Festival commissioned the first United States-based swings exhibition, which consisted of 10 musical swings. Green Box Arts Festival is thrilled to bring “The Musical Swings” back as we celebrate 10 years in Green Mountain Falls! Come delight in this interactive installation and create your own beautiful music while stimulating the natural beauty surrounding you.
This installation consists of a series of musical swings. When used all together, the swings activate different notes, composing musical pieces in which certain melodies emerge only through cooperation. It’s a game where, from the start, visitors adjust to the actions of others to make music with their entire bodies, connect to one another, and have a sense of ownership of the installation through the music they create.
The result is a giant collective instrument that brings together people of all ages and backgrounds.
Since 2011, the original installation, “21 Swings,” has attracted millions of fans to the Quartier des spectacles area in Montréal, where every day each swing has swung an average of 8,500 times.
