Capacative touch sound installation utilizing local sound sources,(material based sounds, field recordings, instrument recordings) and materials sourced from abandoned housing estates /flea markets.
Participants activate the multi-user instrument through touch. Various Taichung based sound elements are triggered through contact with various conductive materials ,(aluminium covered icons,massage tools,cans, musical objects etc) The floor of the exhibition space is earthed through a network of copper tape.Participants earth themselves through the removal of any footware which might break the circuit of conductivity.e.g.rubber soles.
