Design team Daily Tous Les Jours created a totally fun and interactive installation called '21 Balançoires,' that encourages cooperation. They installed a number of swings, that both lit up and played a tune. The public was welcome and encouraged to come try it out and work together to create a beautiful song.

Each swing played a different pre-recorded sound, some being piano notes and sounds from a xylophone. When all 21 swings were in use and even greater song was created. The two designers behind this lovely concept were Mouna Andraos and Melissa Mongiat. This installation was put in Montreal, Quebec in the Quartier des Spectacles.

The Vimeo video shows just how charming and enchanting the project really was. Stats for Charming Musical Swing Installations Trending: Older & Average
