Online website installation
This is an interactive online installation, thought to be implemented in a comment box from a website.
1) I developed an alphabetic list of Dutch composers, and I chose a tiny fragment of representative pieces for each of them from the Dutch music archive.
2) Every fragment of music is related to a letter from the keyboard, and the sound is triggered when you press that key.
3) When writing a comment on the app or website, the comment will be sonified, so every comment written by a visitor will be a miniature piece composed with short fragment of Dutch music, and typing rhythm.
The idea was developed while working with TIME (This Is Music and Theatre Education) for a project for Holland Festival in 2017.
