Das Tanztheremin - A Public Engagement installation by the Somby MusicLab at the Art IN Academia exhibition

February 1, 2018

Thomas Wolf, a researcher in the Somby MusicLab, developed the public engagement project Das Tanztheremin for the exhibition Art IN Academia. The exhibition took place in early 2018 in the Galeria Centralis, Budapest. Das Tanztheremin is an interactive art installation as well as an experimental paradigm. Installed in exhibition spaces, it invites visitors to create sounds together and allows researchers to test scientific hypotheses about how people coordinate their actions in time, in space and in other domains such as musical pitch and harmony.
