Voice-Activated Instruments at NYC’s Clocktower Gallery


Perennial music maker and sound artist Ranjit Bhatnagar will be exhibiting The Singing Room for one week only in May at NYC’s Clocktower Gallery.

The Singing Room is a place for anyone to sing freely, and in public. The room has been built with the “Shy Person” in mind, allowing them to sing without being exposed to the assumed scrutiny of others. Visitors are invited to sing in a small sound proof room. As they sing, the musical instruments outside of the room, abstractly interpret their singing. Each syllable pronounced by the singer is projected as musical and/or acoustic sounds. The installation is deliberately loud, further ensuring that that Shy Person cannot be heard.


The Singing Room will be on view May 2-9 during gallery hours.

A free and open to the public reception will be held on Thursday, May 2nd from 6pm-8pm.

See this interactive installation in Lower Manhattan before it travels to the Tinguely Museum in Basel, Switzerland later this year.
