On a Human Scale re-imagines the people of New York City as a fully playable and immersive
video instrument played by the audience. Each key triggers a different video of a different
person, from a different walk of life, singing a different note. When played together they fuse
into a joyful choir that is totally under the control of whoever is at the keyboard. Playing the
instrument brings to life an audiovisual installation that fuses music, film, people, and
technology into a living, singing tapestry of humanity. In the years to come, the On a Human
Scale experiment aims to continue expanding adding voices from around the world into a
growing musical instrument of humanity.
