Only one more night of Compose The Space
We know: staying at school is probably the last thing you want to be doing Friday night, unless there’s something awesome to do, right?
Well, there’s only one night left of, Compose the Space the 2016 Engagement Award-winning project dreamed up by SFU student Marc St. Pierre and Interactive Arts alumnus Tim Kong.
Compose the Space is an interactive musical installation that combines the idea of piano stairs with Rockband (but with your feet). Jump around and play “chopsticks”, or have a keyboard dance competition with someone you don’t know (yet). You’ll light up the walls of City Hall as you do it and brining smiles to the faces around you.
SFU News interviewed St. Pierre at the beginning of the semester, and he shared that “…the installation’s key engagement tactic is to encourage strangers to collaborate in creating rich and interactive music, where the participation of one person is not enough to create the full musical experience.”
So, drop by Surrey’s 3 Civic Plaza at City Hall this Friday night for your last chance to light up City Hall by making music with people you don’t know (yet)!
