Midi Controlled Chair


For a collaboration between PIPS:lab and the band Anatopia, we created a love song machine. With a slider based touchscreen interface guests could give a customised love song to their new, not so new old or ex- love. Users could slide between various extremes of relationship from, “I kind of like you” to “I really hate you”. The songs texture and lyrics would change accordingly and the completed song could be sent to the person it was about. During this process guest sat in a motorised, midi controlled chair that moved them to the appropriate listening position.
