The Human Harp is an interactive sound installation and performance piece devised by Di Mainstone, artist in residence at QMUL. The Human Harp is made up of ‘Player’ modules that clip on to any urban or industrial structure enabling the user or movician to play it like a giant instrument.
Each Player consists of a retractable string which can be extended, bowed or plucked to create many different sounds.
Yuli has been working on the sound-software which converts the data received from each Player into music.
More information on the Human Harp, including workshops, residencies and performances can be found at humanharp.org.
