BABEL by Michael Christain

Michael Christian's Windpipes formed an enormous bronchial tree, inviting participants to create music by forcing air though its internal pipe organ. A bronchial form, controlled by participants, oscillate, activating an internal pipe organ structure. The piece radiates at night in reaction to the pipes as the participants control the air flow.

The Nebulous Entity is a mobile platform. The strategy of its structural and human design is to create a hyperactive interface between performers and participants. The entity consists of four parts: A central tower that houses a generator, lighting and sound system, lasers and other equipment; the moving platform and stage set, on which the tower is mounted; numerous and extensive tentacles that surround the platform at and above ground level; and single and free-moving performers who accompany the tentacles.
