Two analog synthesizers and one analog drum machine will each cover one wall within the dumpster. The cartoonishly large controls for these devices will be operable by anyone who enters the dumpster, and several people can play any given wall at once. The strobing and sequenced LEDs of each instrument will be the only light within the dumpster, giving the room a space-age atmosphere. Each knob, touch pad, switch, or jack will affect some aspect of the sound or lighting, and participants will need to experiment with these controls to learn their functions. Visitors will need to learn from each other's experiences and cooperate to unlock the full possibilities of their environment. Collaboration with Greg O'Connell, Ash Rickli, and Addison Adams.
Corner of Luckie St. and Cone St. Atlanta, Ga. 10.17.14 - 10.23.14
