How can I augment my music & bring strangers together in unexpected ways through the use of technology?
Ekta, meaning ï¿½Unityï¿½ in my mother tongue (Hindi), is an installation that enhances the music listening experience through all five senses and brings strangers together in an unexpected way. It divides a carefully crafted song into four stems, which build as strangers come together to experience the installation. Each stem is related to the presence of 1 of 4 users. In addition to creating interactive sound and warped responsive light, Ekta utilizes taste, smell and haptic feedback to create a truly holistic experience.
