A Public Art Installation

Troublemakers, in collaboration with Hub Studio.

 

Hexaphone is an immersive multimedia installation built for public spaces. 

 

For the project, three musical artists, Thaïs, Jorane and Kids from the Underground each recorded a song.

The installation consists of five individual modules arranged in a circle.

 

The sounds of the different instruments are isolated then distributed across the five module. This way, listeners can hear every musician’s contribution separately by walking near each module or hear the entire music mix by standing in the center of the circle.

 

This project is part of the cultural programming of the Safe Active Routes, funded under the Agreement on Cultural Development of Montreal and the Montreal Reflex Agreement between the City of Montreal and the Government of Quebec.

 

The Hexaphone is modular for outdoor and indoor spaces. The musical content is fully customizable. For more information and bookings: hexaphone@troublemakers.ca
