Since November I have been working with a group of Music Hackspace members on the Ensemble Project to investigate the nature of collaboration within music hacking. Over the course of the ten month residency, each of us in this group is creating a hacked musical instrument to be showcased as a single work this summer.

Crucial to this process has been regularly meeting up, listening to and experimenting with each other’s work and responding through our own creations.

The Cave of Sounds is the outcome of this process and its form has gradually emerged alongside the identity of the group. As an interactive sound installation inviting audience members to experiment and connect through these new musical interfaces, it is an exploration into the prehistoric origins of music and its power to bind individual identities together.

In this presentation, I will discuss both the process we’ve been through and the resulting installation itself including considerations of interaction design and our efforts to magnify the collaborative experience for our audience through a system of subtle inter-instrumental communications.
