An Interactive Music Experience
at KEXP’s New Home at Seattle Center
472 1st Avenue North
(at the corner of Republican)
April 16th – May 8th
MON-FRI 12 PM – 7 PM
SAT-SUN 10 AM – 5 PM
To celebrate the opening of KEXP’s New Home, KEXP worked with Microsoft to turn 4,000 square feet of currently vacant office space into an interactive installation inviting the audience to physically go inside the music of KEXP Using Microsoft technology including Kinect, participants can remix songs by favorite KEXP musicians alt-J, Floating Points, Ólafur Arnalds, and Samaris.
Curated by KEXP’s Kevin Cole, both the visuals and the music will respond intuitively to visitor’s movements and interactions in the ever-evolving environment. As people move through the installation, they will continuously reshape and customize the music, blurring the line between creator and audience.
The system, which is a part of Microsoft’s ongoing Music x Technology program, was created to explore emerging modes of artistic expression and celebrate advances in interactive technology.
