This project seeks to investigate sounds through an interactive installation, situated in specific context. Specifically we intend to unfold a musical experience, which revolves around the musical composition as the objectively given phenomenon participants will explore. Therefore we propose the question: How can we make an interactive sound installation situated in a public, transitional space, that encourages participants to explore sound? In answering this question, we adopt an embodied phenomenological recognition of the world.
Secondly, we utilise a Research through Design-approach and thirdly, we will apply different theories such as Interaction-theory; Urban spatial theory and Aesthetical theory. These theories are intended to help shape the design in terms of inspiration, and as key analytical entries in figuring out the design context, that is a transitional urban space. Through analysis and discussion, we conclude that designing interactive installations with the intend to highlight a musical experience in an urban transitional space, requires easy, immediate, recognizable but yet particular forms of feedback systems, due to the fact that the people in these spaces have limited time and are on their way to other places. This has led to a general set of experiences, which we argue can lead to better judgement, when designing interactive sound installations in complex urban spaces.
