By Sam Redd | Instrument / Interactive Installation

The Space Ocarina incorporates electrical circuitry, music, and embodied interaction experience. The object is a golden easter egg modified to function as a simple musical instrument. It features a toggle switch and 4 “keys” that change the tone emitted by an internal speaker in response to light exposure. This object is also a kind of experiment-  how people will interact with it, what they seem to expect from it, and whether they recognize it as a musical instrument.
