The Resonance Of Play (2021)

A room filled with instruments of various shapes and characteristics is an invitation to play and express your pent-up emotions and individuality without inhibition. There are no rules and making music is as easy as plugging in a smartphone and swiping intuitively on the custom-made web-based synthesizer.

The question is, whose phone is playing which instrument and making which sound? How does our personal expression start responding to the sounds of others playing around us? How does this change with different people and different personalities? Since there is no right or wrong, The Resonance of Play invites us to become more curious and playful towards the social dynamics of self-expression.
