The Cave of Sounds is an interactive sound installation exploring the power of music to bind individuals together and the visceral urge to use technology to broadcast our identity. It is formed of eight original electronic instruments, each designed and created over a period of ten months by a member of London’s Music Hackspace as a personal and interactive embodiment of the ideas and mind of its creator.
This video documents the first two exhibits of the work at the Barbican 19-26 August 2013 and the Victoria and Albert Museum 21 September 2013. Check out caveofsounds.com for more details about the project and future exhibitions.
The Cave of Sounds was created during a Sound and Music Embedded residency with the Music Hackspace by Tim Murray-Browne working with Music Hackspace members Dom Aversano, Sus Garcia, Wallace Hobbes, Daniel Lopez, Tadeo Sendon, Alex Sonom, Panagiotis Tigas and Kacper Ziemianin.
