HEXADECA in Rundle Mall – Spin, relax, stay a while.
After an enthralling debut at WOMADelaide 2022, HEXADECA has arrived in Rundle Mall with a dream-like installation of custom-built spinner seats, inviting exploration and interaction from participants from all walks of life.
People of all ages and abilities are encouraged to engage with the seats however they see fit – whether it’s finding a spot to sit and enjoy, spinning the seats to activate sound, or observing as interaction dictates which singular elements of a whole musical score are heard.
The architecturally-designed aural playground draws upon modern technology and collaborations with composers and musicians to invite the public to become the conductor. The genre diverse, bespoke music for the work has been written and recorded in South Australia by leading musicians including Adam Page, Tom Thum, and Adelaide’s own all female choir Aurora (Young Adelaide Voices).
Explore HEXADECA near the Gawler Place Canopy from Saturday 14 May – Thursday 2 June 2022.
How it works:
- Music is made
- Music is split into 16 parts
- Each 1/16 of music is assigned to a seat
- Someone comes along and spins a seat. This triggers one part of the music to play
- When every seat is spinning, the whole track is heard
Rundle Mall Opening Hours:
- Monday – Thursday 8am – 6pm
- Friday 9am – 9pm
- Saturday 9am – 8pm
- Sunday 10am – 6pm
