Playing on swings has been, and still is, a popular and fun activity. BANDLI builds upon the instinctive mode of entertainment to create an interactive sound installation. Eight swings will be installed in Pjazza San Ġorġ, and each one will be equipped with a motion sensor which is triggered through the swinging action. These, in turn, trigger sounds of different instruments which will be assigned to each of the swings, allowing the whole structure to function like a music ensemble that is brought to life through the interactive engagement of the public. When two people use the swings, they create a duo; four, a quartet… all the way up to an eight-piece ensemble. BANDLI is a collaboration between the Malta International Arts Festival and Modern Music Days – a concert series of 20th century and contemporary music featuring a collaboration between Valletta2018 and Teatru Manoel.
The installation will be present from the 8th till the 17th July, from 10am till 11pm. Entrance is free.
