musicBottles is an interactive installation for visitors to interact with soundwaves encapsulated in bottles. The installation consists of a set of bottle that encapsulate sounds from Boston, Cambridge and the MIT neighborhood. When a visitor opens a bottle, sounds in the bottle evaporate into the atmosphere, giving visitors a glimpse into Bostonian culture through escaping sounds emanating from the glass vessels.
