Unlock new dimensions to experiencing sound in tactile music installation
Why just hear sound when one can also feel and see it? This is the premise of Sky Kave, a music and visual art installation by Singapore multidisciplinary artist Ferry that puts a rare emphasis on giving the hearing-impaired access to the experiences common in a hearing-centric music world. At the same time, the installation unlocks new “dimensions” to hearing audiences’ sensory experience, adding touch and sight to their consumption of music.
In an ingenious project that breaks down quotidian barriers to communication, Ferry, with technical collaborator Rongzhao, has created a suspended projection screen and a “Kave” floor, a platform equipped with tactile amplifiers, full range speakers and subwoofers, and headphones that enable the transmission of sound frequencies into physical vibrations felt by anyone who lies down on it.
Audiences, both hearing impaired and the hearing, are treated to a carefully curated multimedia show that involves music, film and visual projections that submerges them in a transcendent sensory and auditory experience at The Arts House.
