Annually in December

Downtown - Quartier des spectacles

The interactive installation consists of 120 giant dominos distributed across several stations. The public is invited to play with them, creating an infinite variety of musical and luminous effects in the process.

Topple the dominos in a long cascade and enjoy the results as the domino orchestra plays a unique musical work in an illuminated rainbow of pastel hues. Every set features a different sound profile (vocals, percussion, marimba, balafon or flute), and every domino has its own sound. You can even play DJ by “scratching” a domino by spinning it at different speeds or drumming on it with your fingers.

The installation is rounded out by an architectural projection on UQAM’s Pavillon Président-Kennedy, created by Nouvelle administration. The projection borrows from the installation’s colourful hues and pairs them with graphics that reference the world of dominos.
