“Relatively controlled dance” is a participatory sound installation. It consists of wind-up toys, bass drum synthesis and audience participation. With the wind-up toys, human can choose when and approximately how long they will “dance”, but we do not know for certain how exactly their speed will change over the course of time and how the course of their dance will change when the toys collide with each other. This installation is a contemplation on what and how things happen when humans let things be, when they are not in absolute control of the situation.
