We all love to swing! … BANDLI builds upon this instinctive mode of entertainment to create an interactive music installation. Each swing is equipped with a motion sensor so that music is triggered through the swinging action. Furthermore, different instruments are assigned to the eight swings so that the whole structure functions like a music ensemble that is brought to life through the interactive engagement of the public. If two persons are swinging - it’s a duo; four swings makes a quartet … all the way up to an eight-piece ensemble. BANDLI is a collaboration between the Malta International Arts Festival and the Modern Music Days concert series of Teatru Manoel as part of the Valletta 2018 Cultural Programme in the run up to the European Capital of Culture year.
