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.
Each swing in motion triggers different notes, while secret melodies are unleashed only through ‘cooperation’ – when the movements of different swings are synchronised.
Already a celebrated icon in Montreal’s entertainment district, SIFA 2021 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!
“I think it’s awesome how it brings people together. It unites people. Creation and art is needed in the city to breathe life back into it. So cool. So fun.” – Musical Swings Impact Study
