Sound mirror orchestra in Belgium

According to Andreas Angelidakis‘s website, Artes Musicales is an exhibition on the relationship of contemporary art and classical music. It is curated by Christophe de Jaeger and Joost Fonteyne, and opened at Alden Biesen castle in Belgium in July and runs to August 30.

Based on Sound Mirrors, the WWII ancient bunker-like radars, we proposed a set of musical buildings for the park surrounding the castle.

These structures, arranged in the park like instruments in an orchestra, would catch the sounds of the trees an maybe people having fun around them, and who knows what it would sound like.

I can’t quite tell from the website whether they have actually been built or not – the pictures just show models, so I guess not.

  1. Hi, I have just now found this website whilst I’m hunting around online as I’m seeking some information on electric cellos!. I think it’s an interesting blog so I’ve bookmarked this site and will revisit another day to enjoy a more indepth look when I’m more free.
