The Sound Poster 2.0, created by design duo Trapped in Suburbia and David van Gemeren. By touching the poster you can create music. This 2.0 version of the poster is a multiplayer installation and lets user create their own song just by touching the poster and turning on the different music samples. The poster had its premiere during the Kikk international digital arts festival in Belgium, where it attracted many people and made all of them feel the groove.

As a reaction to the first Sound Poster 1.0, we wanted to amp up the play factor and interaction and therefore decided to go for a multiplayer version. Next to this the first Sound Poster made sounds, this second version actually lets users make music. Sound Poster 2.0 was created by the use of highly conductive ink, multiple capacitive touch sensors and one Raspberry Pi mini computer.

The Sound Poster is a collaborative project between the designers of Trapped in Suburbia(Karin Langeveld & Cuby Gerards) and David van Gemeren in a series of experiments where these designers find the limitations and cross sections of digital and analogue interaction.
