Street Organ 2.0

Ylja Band has a thing for traditions and nostalgia, and her project ‘Street Organ 2.0’ explores how something as old and familiar as a street organ might evolve into a contemporary form of entertainment. Not only has she updated the visual appearance and replaced the pipes and mechanics with a chip and speakers, she has also researched possible uses for her revamped organ. After all, everyone wears earphones with their own music these days. How to draw a crowd? Options include promoting new music in public spaces or using the organ for activities like selling earplugs at festivals.
