The Swings: Amazing Interactive Musical Installation | San Jose

For two months, The Swings installation will be activated in the heart of downtown San José at Plaza de César Chavez.

Created by Montréal-based interaction design studio Daily tous les jours, The Swings is a free interactive art installation in which each swing emits the sounds of a different instrument, and the participants can change the note depending on how high they swing. By swinging together, music ensues. The Swings brings people together and creates a place for play and connection in the heart of downtown.

The Swings
August 4 to October 2, 2016 | 10 am to 10 pm
Plaza de César Chavez, 194 S Market Street, San José

The Swing Team ambassadors are responsible for answering questions from visitors to The Swings and supervising the swings while they are in use. These volunteers will receive training on the the art installation and how it operates.

If you would like to join us to help make this a great experience for all downtown visitors please email volunteer@sanjosejazz.org

During The Swings’ stay in San José, the park will also be hosting the San Jose Jazz Summer Fest and other special events.
