Wait music do not cross
In People’s Head and other stories
Ear-worms, those songs that get stuck in our heads and torture us, are cured either by singing the song aloud or listening to the song. Radio of Songs is a capsule for the street, helping passersby to get rid of the songs playing on repeat in their heads.
Temporary Installation — 2011
transmediale 11, Berlin, Germany
The project is a physical capsule installation designed to be affixed onto existing urban structures. Once the capsule is installed, people can slip their heads in and listen to a radio broadcasting acapella songs by previous participants. After pressing on a sensor to pause the stream, participants are instructed to call a phone number in order to record their own song.
Nope. We actually created more earworms than anything. Arrive with one, leave with ten! The capsule prototype proved to be more a dystopian psychological infection device, using a playful tone to accomplish total brain devastation. In a way, the landscape created by all the earworms is an interesting portrait of pop culture. We like to see the glass half-full at Daily.
