Hopscotch

Create music with "Hopscotch". Each tile triggers sound and light to produce a rhythmic and visual experience.

HOPSCOTCH is an audience activated, audio and visual interactive art installation. The nostalgia of a classic hopscotch layout prompts an automatic response from participants to hop or step across the square tiles. Each hopscotch tile triggers an audio sample and under-glow LED lighting.

As participants become more experimental, several people stand among the squares and explore it as a giant MIDI (musical instrument digital interface) controller or beat pad. The ‘performers’ now have a blank creative canvas to collaborate in ‘freestyle’ playing or to compose their own musical performance by stomping/hopping on the Hopscotch tiles. Hopscotch encourages human interconnection on a creative level, as well as promoting physical activity.

Hopscotch installation's audio is completely customisable to suit its audiences music genre, event theme or company jingle. The pre-programmed audio is all original music production and sound design.
