Event Description

With Oscillators, Intermedio return to TTT with another interactive, participatory musical work that encourages collective action for the sake of sonic resonance. Audience-activated swinging glass pendulums create an evolving musical texture that turns collective actions into sound. Each pendulum’s movement is used to generate a live musical score that is continuously performed by an electronic player piano. The swinging oscillators act as a medium, translating the physical actions and collective activity of the audience into distinct rhythmic trajectories and pitches. In this way, the player piano acts as a means of realizing an improvisatory group composition where the audience gets to participate simultaneously as both performer and listener.
