Melody Map is an interactive art installation designed and developed by Natasha Lawrence and Dimity Miller for the Ars Electronica Futurelab Academy and presented in the 2016 Ars Electronica Festival. Melody Map is an experiment on world sounds and our perception of cultural diversity. Participants can create their own composition by pressing holes in paper sheets or playing pieces composed by previous visitors on a windup music box. By generating melodies of sounds from across the world, the exhibit provokes thought on the differing but complementary nature of varied cultural music.
