Mickeyphon by panGenerator and Disney, Warsaw

Warsaw – Disney has teamed up with audio-visual designers panGenerator to create an interactive installation for young children.

  • Mickeyphon records sounds from its environment and uses them to generate rhythmic patterns
  • A pulsing LED equaliser visualises the music

Making its debut at Warsaw’s Ethnographic Museum, the Mickeyphon captures sounds made in its vicinity and modifies them to create original compositions. The kinetic installation rotates to face the source of a noise and an accompanying LED display visualises the soundscape in real time. 

‘The piece invites children and adults to experiment with creating sounds using their voices, hands or the provided instruments, and observes their influence on the sculpture,’ says panGenerator co-founder Krzysztof Goliński.
