Sound Forest

Sound Forest is a collaborative research project carried out between Sound and Music Computing at KTH and the Swedish Museum of Performing Arts (Scenkonstmuseet) in Stockholm.

It is a multisensory installation and a large-scale Digital Musical Instrument (DMI) incorporating sound, haptic feedback and colored lights. Five light-emitting interactive strings, vibrating haptic platforms and speakers are used to provide multisensory feedback and musical content. The installation will be on display at the Museum of Performing Arts until 2020. 


Duration of the project: 2016-ongoing
