Music and Goddess -- Project Summary

Musical Landscapes and the Goddess of Music  exhibition presents advances in interactive art through an exploration of the science, art and spirituality of Music, and its reflections in the Goddess images across Asian cultures.

Through a collection of interactive exhibits employing new musical synthesis based on traditional grammar, interactive multimedia installations and recordings of performances by masters, the project will allow viewers to enter the world of sound, musical landscapes, and its cultural and spiritual aesthetics. 

The project presents both traditional and new instruments based on Indian Sitar, Burmese Saung Harp, Thai Xylophone,  Korean Kayagum, Chinese Guzheng and Pipa, Vietnamese Dan Tranh,  Javanese & Balinese Gamelan, chanting, and others.  New instruments with embedded computation demonstrate interactions through gesture, touch, pull, movement, gaze and kinesthetic action. In addition, through responsive computing, people by their position, gesture, and movements control musical events in the exhibition environment. 

Taken in total, the ideas presented present a vision for the design of society centered on Innovation, Well Being and Compassion.

In an era of rapid technology provoked changes, and an age of information anxiety, this exhibition  shows healing alternatives of re-‘centering’ available in the practice of traditional music.

 

Newly designed musical instruments in the exhibition allow people to ‘tune in’ and recharge to brace for an environment of relentless technological change.
