Making music on swings together

When we have to travel, we often use the bus. Using the bus often means waiting for the bus as well. In Montreal a team of designers has places an interactive installation of musical swings alongside a Montréal city street and not just a normal swing, next to a bus stop. Their goal is to bring magic to everyday events. Wouldn’t that make waiting for the bus much more fun? Watch the video below to see what happens:

The main idea is that the designers want people to cooperate, we can achieve more together than alone. There are 21 swings, each swing has it’s own tune, but some melodies only emerge from cooperation. This project brings people of all ages and backgrounds together and creates a place for playing and hanging out in the middle of a big city.
