What are Theremin Bollards?

An installation by interact and connect. These interactive sonic sculptures will blow your mind. All ages and abilities are invited to throw their best shapes around – your movements will be translated back to you as music. We call it, the interactive sound sculpture anyone can play.

Why did we do it?

We have observed the power music has first hand, the creator of Theremin Bollards daughter has a physical disabilty, but became a competent drummer regardless of the physical issues she had.  He says. “Observing someone achieving through adversity is an inspiring thing. What is the key factor in this? I have asked myself this question many times. I believe music is the answer and desire to express ourselves” David Young 2012

We are a multi-disciplinary team who together blend digital and analog Theremin technologies with sculptural forms to create sonic art works. We realise the power music has on the human mind and body and are working towards creating an effective therapy tool. As well as therapy we understand that the potential for developing our devices spans a range of sectors.
