Swing Set Creates Musical Compositions From People’s Rocking [Video]

Swing Set Creates Musical Compositions From People’s Rocking [Video]

Elas Duas studio's Baloica is a temporary sound installation that turns the plaything into an instrument.

Elas Duas, a multidisciplinary studio based in Guimarães in Portugal, created a temporary sound installation that turned a simple swing set into a fun musical instrument.

The installation, called Baloica, was installed at the Convento das Dominicas in Guimarães. The swing set is made from wood planks and rope. The swings are attached to a mechanism that plays musical notes at random every time a person swings back and forth.

The sound installation is yet another example of how everyday objects can be turned into musical interfaces with the help of technology.
