The Musical Swings by Canadian artist collaborative, Daily tous les jours, returns to Green Mountain Falls this year in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Green Box Arts Festival.
In 2014, Green Box Arts Festival commissioned the first United States-based swings exhibition, which consisted of 10 musical swings. Set amidst the mountains, the swings not only brought participants together but also brought them closer to the astonishing surroundings.
The Musical Swings consists of a series of musical swings. When used all together, the swings activate different notes, composing musical pieces in which certain melodies emerge only through cooperation. It's an interactive experience where visitors adjust to the actions of others to make music with their entire bodies, connect with one another, and have a sense of ownership of the installation through the music they create. The result is a giant collective instrument that brings together people of all ages and backgrounds.
Since 2011, the original swings installation, 21 Swings, has attracted millions of fans to the Quartier des spectacles area in Montreal, where every day each swing has swung and average of 8,500 times.
Visit Green Box Arts Recommends to view other art installations through Green Mountain Falls and nationwide!
