Self-sensory instrument (2021)

The self-sensory instrument is a participatory sound installation that aims to create a physical and social sonic experience. The audience is invited to wear the instrument and thus take active part in creating a music performance. The instrument is an autonomous system consisting of microphones, speakers, and sensors that amplify and transform the participant’s movements into sound in real time. The speakers sit tight one the body, so that the sound is experienced as tactile vibrations. 

Sól Ey is an Icelandic sound artist, instrument developer, and performer based in The Netherlands. In her work, sound is explored as a tangible and spatial phenomenon.
