The Biggest Jukebox in the World, LUCA School of Arts

The carillon used to be the ‘City Radio’, and even until today remains an essential element of a city’s soundscape. Digital Design students and the carillonneur community collaborated to ideate and prototype a playful app that brings this immaterial cultural heritage closer to the public. People sipping on a beer at a sunny terrace under the carillon tower can request a song. A little later their tune will be heard on the Biggest Jukebox of the World.

The concept works: the carillonneurs visibly enjoy the otherwise hard to establish interaction with their audience; listeners and passers-by are happily surprised by the unexpected possibility to influence the city’s playlist and all of the sudden seem to realise ‘somebody is actually playing up there!’.

The “Biggest Jukebox in the World” events act as a stepping stone towards a more profound research project on the impact of (digital) design on the safeguarding - in all its facets - of intangible cultural heritage.

Team: Daan Annemans & Ingwio D’Hespeel (LUCA School of Arts), Davy De Winne (Odisee University College), Andries, Vic, Rien, Jeroen, Jeroen & Sofie (bitsoflove.be), and Luc Rombouts & Carl Van Eyndhoven (carilloneurs).

With support from the Flemish Government.
