MFNW + TFNW + Instrument = Duet

TechFestNW is proud to be working with Instrument, a digital creative agency in Portland Oregon. This week, you’ll notice a village of glowing pyramid-shaped structures right off the Burnside Bridge in Northeast Burnside for MusicFestNW and TechFestNW in their ‘Duet’ installation. Each of the 10 structures relates to a MFNW venue.  The pyramids will be synched with the energy from each venue and color and motion around the base of the pyramids will represent each band’s individual style. The peaks will then be reacting to the social media conversations surrounding the festival in real time. Audiences can also interact with the structures by use of their mobile devices.

The interactive village will be on display at Northeast Burnside and Martin Luther King Blvd. through the night of September 8th, when the festival wraps.

Founded in 2002, Instrument is an independent digital creative agency in Portland, Oregon specializing in the concepting, design and production of digital content and integrated experiences for web, mobile and the physical world.
