Musical Swings

Daily tous les jour (Canada)

Take a siesta, hop on a swing and make collective music in this refreshing urban installation by Canadian artists Daily tous les jours.

From Canadian artists Daily tous les jours – the talented people behind We Can Dance (SIFA 2019) – comes Musical Swings, a whimsical game of swings that takes a fresh look at the idea of cooperation.

Known for their deft blend of storytelling and technology to transform urban spaces, Daily tous les jous now turns the everday swing into a site for collaboration, cooperation and connection with others.

Already a celebrated icon in Montreal’s entertainment district, Musical Swings invites people of all ages to make music together. Each swing in motion triggers different notes, while secret melodies are unleashed only through ‘cooperation’ – when the movements of different swings are synchronised.

SIFA 2020 now brings Musical Swings to the heart of the city in Dhoby Ghaut’s Cathay Green. Come enjoy a day out, let your hair down and be part of these spontaneous musical compositions!
