MICKEYPHON (pl: MIKIFON) is an interactive audiovisual kinetic sculpture, inspired by Mickey Mouse, created for Disney. MICKEYPHON listens to the sounds in the surroundings, rotating in the direction of the sound sources and samples them to create and playback rhythmic patterns based upon them. The visuals displayed on the custom cylindrical RGB LED matrix are audio-reactive, tightly integrated with the music output of the installation. The piece invites both children and adults to experiment with creating sounds using their voices,
clapping their hands or using the provided instruments and observe their influence on the kinetic, visual and audiatory output of the sculpture.
