Play at Lucas Abela’s award-winning Temple of Din; a cacophonous arcade of hybrid pinball machines and musical instruments, where creating sound – not scoring points – is the main objective.
Artist Lucas Abela started in the underground noise music scene; these days, his practice has evolved into creating participatory sound installations. Abela builds large-scale noise instruments for musical play, designed to turn audiences into performers, in line with his philosophy that “noise music is far more rewarding to play than watch”. His pinball machine artworks are mutated musical instruments that allow players to trigger cacophonous sounds by firing balls with the flippers.
The Temple of Din pop-up arcade brings together pinball artworks from gallery collections around the world, as well as some brand new creations. Step into the Temple to play with the Pinball Pianola, a piano string/pinball hybrid; Balls for Cthulhu, a pentagram-shaped machine built from guitar fretboards; the breakcore-sample-triggering Flip Off; and more.
