NS GLOW TrainJam - Side Event
‘Taking a musical light trip together!’
SATURDAY 11 UNTIL 18 NOVEMBER
There is nothing wrong with ‘keeping your own company’ in the train. Listening to great music, looking outside, reading something, and holding a WhatsApp conversation: all things that are at home in the train. In Train Jam, the NS-GLOW experience, everything is different… passengers discover new forms of social interaction and technologies. The 4-person divisions in the train are transformed into interactive play areas with music and light. Physical objects – 3D printed – can be placed on the touchscreen to produce your own train journey ‘GLOW’ music clip. The table is the social heart, the interaction with physical objects makes it accessible for everyone.
Train Jam forms the perfect link between technology and mutual interaction. The focus is no longer on your smart phone but on real objects on an interactive board. Above all, Train Jam is for young and old because everyone understands physical interaction from a board game perspective. Joining in is easy: just a question of positioning, taking and turning an object. The music components provide infinite freedom of combinations. You can get started right away, but each time you will discover new combinations. Your results are stored and can be played back as a light art work. At Eindhoven station we will make one of the jam tables available to the public. In addition, we have a jukebox feature in which the music made by the train passengers can be replayed on a big screen. You can save and share these tracks.
