This creates a dynamic, experience that reinforces the morphic visual identity and brand.

River Of Words

The River of Words is a 32 speaker, 360˚ interactive sound installation.

People transform the sound track in realtime by triggering sensors as they move through the space.

The effects range from enhancing the comfort and friendliness of the spaces; to uplifting, energising and surprising people as they move through The Academy.

Realtime Microphone

The realtime microphone is simply about having fun and encouraging people to play.

When people speak into the microphone their voice is transformed into bizarre mutations. 
Much to their delight.

Dial A Mood

Dial a mood is a simple interface that allows people to choose different playlists to change the mood of any of the room environments.

The different ‘mood states’ are:

Energy | Focus | Calm | Catalyst

The comments can be used to improve services or be 
re-composed into the ever evolving sound installations.
