Monument Lab – Sample Philly by Kara Crombie

Sample Philly is an interactive sculpture honoring Philadelphia’s rich musical history. Doubling as an outdoor boombox and functioning music production studio, participants can produce their own fantasy musical compositions from a vast archive of songs recorded in and about the city. Kara Crombie’s sample bank includes snippets from hundreds of notable Philadelphia songs and crowdsourced samples uploaded by local musicians, blending the sounds of the past and present.
