The Sound Lab:
This year, Rocklab has teamed up once again with Michael Bradke's Mobiles Musikmuseum to bring you several interactive play stations, among which the Komponiermaschine. This giant hybrid bike works like a huge musical box as soon as one starts to pedal. The tempo, rhythm and melodies can be altered freely so everyone can come up with their own piece of music. Another physical activity awaits the young ones in the Loop Disco, which is a giant controller resembling a dance floor. By dancing and jumping around one triggers off a set of samples and can recompose a song with one's dance moves. Furthermore, La Boîte, developed by French audiovisual artist duo Gangpol & Mit, will enable the young ones to discover one of the fundamental devices of electronic music: the sequencer!
