As part of Musictown Festival, Music and technology are getting cosy for this novel musical installation!
It will allow 12 people at a time to create musical loops by pressing buttons on a system of electronically controlled but mechanically played acoustic instruments. Each electronic sequencer will control one note of a marimba and a chime, the sound they make is up to you!
The installation takes its name from the latin word for 12 and was designed and built by Ed Devane only last year. Ed will be on hand for the duration of the installation to show visitors how the system works and get the creative juices flowing.
Ed Devane is an Irish multidisciplinary artist working primarily with sound. He designs instruments and is a member of the design and craft council of Ireland. He has also released music under his own name on various labels.
