The Musical Swings is a giant collective musical installation from which certain melodies emerge only through cooperation between players, thus stimulating a sense of community and ownership of space.
The Swings are an interactive public installation designed to encourage collaborative behaviours between strangers. The Swings bring vibrancy by gathering people of all ages and backgrounds and leads people to become aware of each other.
The Swings are open daily from 9:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M. from September 17 to October 19, 2022.
- Swings are collaborative! Try syncing up your pace with others on the swing set and hear how the music evolves.
- Use the swings responsibly: no standing, jumping off, or twisting of the ropes.
- In peak use times, we encourage people to be mindful of sharing access.
