Overview

Theremin Bollards are interactive sonic sculptures will blow your mind. All ages and abilities are invited to throw their best shapes around – your movements will be translated back to you as music. We call it, the interactive sound sculpture anyone can play.

Goals

Theremin Bollards designed to be part of an exhibit called Rockets and Robots. Our interactive music making device was designed to provide a fun, stable and reliable exhibit that would endure daily use from a young and enthusiastic audience. Our unique Theremin system was installed and offered remote Theremin Tuning and a 10 preset Theremin DSP unit.

Process

Interact and Connect had a eight week deadline for this commission and worked closely with the museum exhibits team. We successfully communicated remotely, providing technical documents, including CAD designs, electronic specifications, shipping and installation support, including: detailed manual and online/phone support and spare parts.

Additional Information

The installation was a special request and pushed our normal delivery time scale to the extreme. We were able to meet the deadline for delivery and provided everything necessary for the museum team to build and install Theremin Bollards themselves.
