This piece is an interactive acoustic sound installation. With the materials silkthreads and stringed instruments, which act as resonating boxes, a gigantic spatial instrument is formed that the participants gets to know through the work of their hands, with sound, form and perception. The path of the silk threads through the room creates a visual composition, while its main purpose is to be a sound installation aimed at all curious, amateurs and professionals alike. No previous knowledge is required.

With the piece, a musical event is created that embracest that everyone, depending on previous experience, can create sound and music and that we depend on listening as an element of dialogue in society.

It is as much a social situation as a work of art, a sound installation as a concert format.

Everyone is a co-creator and a musician.

From first performance and composition workshops I held named "Ingredients & Textures" with Bohuslän Big Bang (an improvisation collective with professionals and amatuers) 24-26 nov at The Gerlesborg School of Fine Art. During the workshop the group was assigned to create small compositions with only 3-4 materials each, workshop and residence was finished up with a public concert were the audience in the end became the musicians.
