BruumRuum!

A game of light that fills the night with content, a huge equalizer to gauge the intensity of the sound colors of city life

BruumRuum! is a permanent interactive light art installation in Barcelona that invites passing visitors—young and old alike—to participate in turning the entire plaza into a glorious game in which the sounds of city life become a light-filled visual jazz.

The installation combines color and sound through 522 inground linear luminaires embedded in a 3,300sqm area. The LEDs react to the intensity of voices and the ambient sound that the city generates using sensors that have been installed around the plaza.

In short, BruumRuum! is a game that fills the night with content, a huge equaliser to gauge the intensity of the sound colors of city life.
