Musician and sound artist Ryan Olson teams with producer and sound artist Seth Rosetter to convert MASS MoCA’s lobby and basement into a musical instrument that reacts to stairwell footfalls, ambient noise, and deliberate acts of musical intervention.
Allovers provides back-line beats — overdubs, harmonic tones, and top-line melodies — while visitors provide musical motivation, both purposeful and accidental. Analog knobs invite users to dial in an array of musical atmospheres, from ambient fuzz to hard-party modes.
The installation is sponsored in part by RØDE microphones.
