EKUMEN is a Montreal-based production company working in the audio and media arts. For the last decade, the organization has been highlighting sound in a variety of settings, including concerts, public-art installations and stage productions.
LOOP: LOOP is an interactive installation of large wheels (7 feet in diameter) that generate sound, light and movement, controlled by audience participation. LOOP takes the old-school, 19th century technologies of the zoetrope, music box and handcar, and fuses them into a retro-futuristic motion picture machine. Audience members are invited to step inside the wheels, and discover how their own movements turn a series of still images into an animation enlighten by its real time generative soundtrack.
