Face The Music

VANCOUVER
British Columbia

FACE THE MUSIC is a temporary interactive musical installation that enlivens the city with music and brings temporary seating to little known view spots in Vancouver.

A musical bench installation.

Simple wooden modular benches are hung off musical boom boxes that provide both support and sound making using mechanical chime “instruments”. The swinging action activates the sound device with more people making more music.

PLACEMAKING

The bench activates a public space through presence and interactive sounds (including a launch concert with local artist Ben Brown)

DIGITAL WOOD

Birch faced ply was CNCed from rigid flat sheets into bendable yet continuous strips using simple cut patterns.

IN HOUSE

The project was proposed, designed, built and installed by Carscadden staff. A great learning opportunity!
