Jungle Boogie takes visitors deep into a wild world of wonder and enchantment. Play on the 18 keys of this giant, interactive musical instrument to activate the central psychedelic forest scene. When any of the keys are touched, a musical note is emitted, and each key also lights up the animals, birdlife, trees and lanterns within this colourful vision. Collaborate with friends, family and complete strangers to create beautiful tunes and an iridescent light show.
Originally created as In The Scale of Sea for Tumbalong Lights a crowd favourite of Vivid Sydney 2018 – the light work has been given a second life with a verdant jungle makeover. Following exacting guidelines, this piece is designed to be inclusive and accessible for people of all abilities. Place your hands on a key, listen for the sound and watch as a trail of light leads your eyes to a lantern within the forest. The more people play together, the more spectacular the piece becomes.
