Yesterday, we reported that Microsoft has won a Silver Lion at the Cannes International Festival of Creativity in the Cyber category for their #MakeWhatsNext campaign that celebrates and encourages girls and women to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Today, Microsoft announced that they picked up three more Cannes Lions awards for DELQA, an interactive music installation created with Texas-based musician and producer Matthew Dear.

The awards included a Gold Lion for Sound Design, and Silver Lions in the Digital Installations and Events and Spatial Brand Installation and Experience categories. DELQA was conceived in collaboration with New York agency Listen.

The installation in New York City invited visitors to experience Dear’s music in a maze-like physical space rigged with an integrated system of lights, speakers and Kinect sensors that pulsed with a constantly changing soundscape.
