Project

Music in the Garden

Groups

For the 42nd annual Bachman's/Marshall Field's flower show, we worked with landscape designer Julie Messervy and the production team from Marshall Field's to develop a set of interactive music and sound experiences that could integrate into their large indoor garden. This included four Yamaha Disklavier pianos playing different pieces that visitors could transform by using a touchpad station in front of each piano, a forest with actuated illuminated windchimes that would respond to visitors blowing on pinwheels, a pretend underwater garden with "Music Shapers" that made environmental and musical sounds when squeezed, and music that tied those sounds together, along with new material that was presented at the end of the experience.
