Picaroon: Global Sounds

Light/sound installation

‘Global Sounds’ is a light and sound installation that highlights the cultural diversity that migrants help to create. The installation comprises of a series of seven pyramids, each with its own unique sound representing a different culture when activated. Triggered by passersby, all pyramids playing together compose a complete harmonic musical piece.

Picaroon is the collaboration of two artists, Rebecca Gischel and Sebastian Walter.

Picaroon’s art is intended to bring people together and make them wonder. By definition, interactive art cannot stand on its own, especially in public spaces. It needs people who are willing to stop whatever they are doing, and to explore and interact with a particular piece of art. Solely driven by their own curiosity, these people create a novel experience altogether.


Picaroon creates Interactive Art since 2012, their installations were exhibited in Germany, England, Scotland and in Austria at museums, in public spaces and at exhibitions such as the Ars Electronica Festival 2013.
