Troublemakers had the mandate for conceptual proposals and sound creation.
Following the success of the New-Brunswick Botanical Garden‘s Mosaiculture exhibition, Troublemakers presents an innovative interactive experience through these mosaicultures: motion sensors have been installed on organic sculptures to bring the garden’s characters and animals to life with sound: as visitors pass by, a bison bellowed, blew, and “moved” by making its hooves resonate on the ground, a peacock began to sing, a gardener whistled a melodic tune, addressed the visitor, and watered his plants, or a turtle became active in vibration, and “moved”.
New installations in 2022 include the Jellyfish Aquarium (a floral arrangement of five suspended jellyfish that “float” in an aquarium made up of walls of water, kinetic pellets and marine sounds) and Ostrich Song: an ensemble of five ostriches singing a playful barbershop-style musical piece.
