We are developing a portable interactive musical installation called the Whimsichord. This device will react to the movement

and touch of “movicians” responding with sound.

Fabrication: All of these pods will be soft and body-centric, fashioned out of high-density foam and upholstered using leather and wood veneer. Clips and powerful magnets will be used to attach each module from wall to body. The internal foam will be used to house and protect the technology. Each module will be fashioned out of lightweight materials such as foam and fabric. They will all be soft and body-centric. Unlike the Whimsichord, they will not involve technology. Some will be percussive. For some their sound will be undecided. Their shapes will be ambiguous leaving gaps for reinterpretation by movicians
