At a Sound-playground people of all ages can create their own absorbing sonic experiences. You don't need any previous experience of working with sound. All that's required are simple physical movements, together with everyday objects such as fans, bicycle pumps, water pistols or coffee cups. The sounds of your movements are picked up using contact microphones and hydrophones, then amplified so that when you touch the installations you hear your movements in the speakers at the same time. The sounds are also manipulated using effects, so that you can always create interesting new variations. Here there are no rules or pre-defined 'correct' ways to create sound. Instead, total freedom and wild experimentation are encouraged. A Sound-playground can be created for all kinds of events, venues or groups. James Brewster has previously created interactive installations at e.g. Latitude festival (on the BBC Radio 3 stage), Transmediale in Berlin, Exit 07 in Luxembourg and Södra Teatern in Stockholm. Among his other projects is Electro-acoustic café – a combined espresso-bar and quadrophonic sound-installation. EAC has been featured on Swedish national TV and on the front page of Sydsvenskan (one of the country's main newspapers).
