Musical Chairs

Musical Chairs was a touring art piece that travelled across the UK to various arts centers. The piece icnluded 7 wooden chairs which each used a capacative touch sensor to detect if someone was sitting in the chair. When someone sat down on the chair it would play a random note from a pre-selected set of notes. When used together all the chairs would harmnoze in an infinite variety of ways. You could also play a different note by holding hands with someone on another chair.
