Tactus is an interactive system that offers a contact point with the ancestral world of prehistoric music. The sound flow of Tactus is generated through interaction with objects that deliberately recall the archetypal form of the monolith.
The six monoliths reproduce another universal form, a luminous pictogram representing a hand. Bringing your hand near to the shape/pictogram, Tactus' sound flow will be activated. This simple contact is a natural and universal gesture going through places and times.
