Michael Davis is a multi-disciplinary artist, creating sound, rhythm and three dimensional forms, and has spent several years working to create large scale interactive sonic installations. His work engages with the public through touring interactive installations.
“My work challenges the mental barriers I have observed through my fifteen years of facilitating participatory music that people can sometimes place between themselves and their inherent creativity”.
Illumaphonium is a dynamic and interactive, multi sensory, music making installation – the first of its kind. The semi acoustic, semi automatic, multi-player musical sculpture stands over three and a half meters tall and consists of sweeping arrays of illuminated chime bars. Each of which respond to touch, with ever changing patterns of light and sound, spreading out like waves over the giant instruments surface, bringing people together into a fun and spontaneous music making experience.”
As well as ‘Illumaphonium’ this year at Noisily, Michael’s installations have been shown at Glastonbury Festival, Bestival, Boomtown Fair and will be making their first international appearance at Signal Festival of Lights in Prague this Autumn.
