Baloica is an interactive sound installation that transforms a swing set into a musical instrument. A kinect captures the motion of the people on the swings as they swing back and forth, triggering different sounds. The more people are at the swings, the more complex the music gets. Baloica is a collaborative experience as users search for consonance and harmony between their swings, trying to find pleasant sounds and compose their own tunes.
