Cello Fortress is a unique combination of a game and a live music performance. A cellist defends a fortress by improvising on his cello.

Meet Stanley, the world’s first interactive player piano.

Stanley is a precocious instrument who takes song requests via Twitter. Stanley can play a lot of songs, but he loves indie music. Stanley bares all as his moving parts (gears, bellows, hammers, valves) visibly work as the keys press themselves.

Vinyl Workout, an interactive project designed by artist Theo Watson for the inaugural Rotterdam Electronic Music Festival back in 2006, transforms any floor into a giant record player. You control the speed and direction of the music by running around on its surface.

Theo Watson’s interactive installations are absolutely delightful. Recent installations include Knee Deep, an interactive installation that invites children to jump in and explore unexpected worlds of different proportions with their feet. The Portrait Machine  is an interactive photography installation that visualizes the connections between visitors. It makes these connections based on a number of features, such as clothing choice, hair color, facial expression, and composition within the frame.
