Samba Surdo is an interactive eight-channel sound installation that allows viewers to experience Brazilian samba. Visitors are invited to walk into the center of a room where eight speakers are positioned around them in the shape of a circle. Each speaker represents a different instrument played in a samba orchestra. As the visitor moves throughout the circle, his/her position is tracked by a set of sensors that determine which speaker should turn on. In this way, Samba Surdo gives the visitor the role held by the Master of Percussion in a samba orchestra; by moving and experiencing the installation, the visitor determines which instruments are played.
