Ritual, a project by Conductive Music, proposes a cross-disciplinary collaboration based on interactive musical instruments. Based on conductivity, the bespoke instruments will combine augmented objects (MakeyMakey), wearable digital clothing (Flora), and motion tracking (Leap Motion). In performance, these will become interactive platforms for artistically exploring rhythms of life and technological change in agrarian societies.

Ritual reflects upon universal elements of agriculture – light, air, water, earth, plants, and metal. Agriculture has been a part of life in these two countries for millennia. Farming, though still treasured and protected, only comprises a small part of the UK and Japan GDP today, a result of the post-war emphasis on technology production. The arable land in both island nations is disappearing. By incorporating natural elements and movements that embody the processes of agriculture alongside new technologies, we hope to provide a reflection upon the place of farming, land, heritage, and nature in Japanese and British culture today.
