In Kling Klang Klong, participants are invited to place virtual audio sources at various locations in the city. The sources can be rearranged and their parameters changed. Through our interactions, a city-wide instrument emerges, playing a concert that can be harmonic, experimental or noisy. The participants of Kling Klang Klong are audience and creators, listeners and musicians at the same time. Together we create a common, dynamic soundscape that can be experienced during the time of the festival. Kling Klang Klong runs on Android 4 devices and requires an internet connection while playing. Headphones are recommended.
