DARK MOON DESIGNS
Nestled in the Forest, a group of nature-consumed light-drums wait for Forester interaction. The Drum Circle is created for the Forest community, in order to build it further and nourish bonds between individuals through music-making. The Ocular Organ is an interactive music-to-light installation that sets the stage for bystanders to become participants and music to become visible. The Ocular Organ blurs the line between audiences and performers through its interactivity and ever-changing design. Each note sparks a different reaction from the Ocular Organ making every moment as different as the people of Electric Forest. In the daytime, the Ocular Organ stands alone as a handcrafted work of art containing a full 88-key keyboard that is full of its own surprises. At night the Ocular Organ gets brighter and brighter when Sherwood Forest comes alive. Whether you're a maestro or only know a few chords you're welcome to stop by and play!
Giving an environment to the Foresters to allow them to express themselves, discover their talent, and interact with the community is the driving force behind Dark Moon Design’s creations. They cherish the curiosity of being human and look to nurture that honest and vulnerable exploration of the unknown. The team has roots in Chicago and you can find any of them doing a plethora of things; most of the team works within the lighting industry as lighting technicians, directors, and designers. When not hands deep in lights, they are catching shows, road-trippin, hiking, and overall adventuring. Finding inspiration in anything and everything, Dark Moon Designs strives to only go onward and upward--always taking it further.
