Music is an expression of gravity on earth as well as our bodily proportions. Creating and listening to music brings humans together. This installation presents a new, physical way of making collaborative music. 36 sensors under a carpet, connected to a music computer and loudspeakers. The patterns invite people to explore different combinations. 6 groups with different instruments, 6 zones in each group. By standing or dancing on different combinations of the 6 zones, 64 different loops can be triggered. Total 384 loops, all synchronised so that they all sound good in every possible combination. If no-one stands on any zone for more than 2 seconds, the loops in each group is randomly re-arranged. Flooor can produce 68 billion possible combinations.
