On a Human Scale

Matthew Matthew


On a Human Scale is an ongoing mission to create a fully playable instrument of humanity. This global collaborative experiment began by filming a vast cross section of everyday New Yorkers singing. Their individual notes are woven into a fully interactive video installation that the public is invited to play, using a piano. From amateur key banging to virtuosic recitals, each player of the instrument brings to life an immersive audio visual experience that fuses music, film, people and technology into a living, breathing, singing cross section of humanity.

On a Human Scale was an official selection at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival Storyscapes.  Learn more at onahumanscale.com.
