Interactive Visual Music Instruments
Penrith and other performances around Australia
Light Rhythm Plays! are mobile interactive visual music instruments, played by people of all ages, generating music and animation from small mobile trolleys.
They are designed to be presented in public spaces for an accessible fun music and media experience that offers opportunity for social inclusion and wellbeing. The first instruments were developed in 2012 with the input of Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy Australia and presented at the Dame Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre and other venues in Penrith in October and December 2012. They have since been presented at public events and activations, a launch at the National Film and Sound Archive in the ACT, a Wellbeing conference in Paddington, as well as at International Day for People with Disabilities events.
