This interactive museum exhibit is a sonic forest that was created by a massive collaboration between various New York parties. The collaboration includes music by Matthew Dear, designs by The Principals, audio expertise by Listen and artistic elements from Charlie Whitney. The entire exhibit at NYC’s New Museum incubator is basically a giant musical instrument.

The museum's visitors are welcomed into a psychedelic sonic forest where they can all contribute to the sounds that are produced. While Matthew Dear's music is the only sound being projected, the interactive setting allows guests to manipulate and play with cords.

The idea for the installation was to invite people to step inside the music itself. By working with strangers, the installation provides a unique and personalized experience. This futuristic environment presents an immersive display of sound, touch and light.
