In an attempt to find alternative mediums where people experience music and learn about sound, The Willow Room explores interactive space with motion response music. Using a combination of motion sensors, electronic music composition, and architectural design, Allan X. Chen and his creative team bring to you an environment where YOU can become your own composer. Imagine wading through a sea of hanging ribbons where the musical events around you responds to your movements. Come experience this new environment, learn about how they created the installation, and see where they hope to take it in the future.
On 18th of May at Arthill Gallery in London, The Willow Room Team present to you a soft launch event, in partnership with PUNCHY Drinks. Enjoy a drink of PUNCHY Rum Punch on the house, as you explore the gallery, with the chance to chat to our team members in an intimate and casual gallery environment.
