New stretch target

Any extra funds will go into buying more equipment for a larger version of the installation. We eventually hope to create an experience with over 100 speakers!

About us.

Kai Lab is an interactive design studio that create responsive installations and immersive experiences. Our works are powered by new technologies that are developed in-house to create unique artistic experiences. For this project, we are working with designer and programmer Arthur Carabott to create a new, spatialised audio experience.

The concept.

  • 16 bluetooth speakers connected to mobile phones, controlled by a centralised playback system
  • Speakers will be independent but synchronised, and will be placed in an outdoor setting in a 4x4 grid
  • A team of composers and sound artists have designed pieces specifically for this 16-channel set up, so that each part of the composition is designed for a particular location in space
  • The audience is free to move throughout the space, exploring the different regions of sound

The event.

  • We will be holding the event on the evening of the 22nd of June in Hackney
  • Guests are invited to bring along a picnic dinner and some drinks
  • The listening experience will last around an hour
  • Get in touch here if you're a supporter and are interested in attending!

How you can help.

This is a self-funded project and we need some support to purchase gear for the event, primarily speakers, an outdoor router and some lights. Suggested donations are around £30, however any amount is hugely helpful!

This will be the first in what we hope will be a series of events. As a supporter you will of course be welcome at the event on the 22nd of June as well as all following iterations of the project as it grows and changes. You can also join our mailing list so that you can get involved in other events, not just this audio experience.
