David Byrne: Playing the Building

31 08 2009

Artist & Musician David Byrne has created a sound installation in London, based around the idea of using a building as an instrument. Nice way to approach otherwise ‘derlict’ spaces.

Playing the Building is a sound installation in which the infrastructure, the physical plant of the building, is converted into a giant musical instrument. Devices are attached to the building structure — to the metal beams and pillars, the heating pipes, the water pipes — and are used to make these things produce sound. The activations are of three types: wind, vibration, striking. The devices do not produce sound themselves, but they cause the building elements to vibrate, resonate and oscillate so that the building itself becomes a very large musical instrument.
