The Wall of Sound... and Light

This has nothing to do with the infamous Phil Spector and his signature studio technique, but it is musical and it does involve architecture.  Building Music is an interactive installation created by Alberto García, Julio Obelleiro, Jorge Cano and Pedro Enriquez.

In this exhibit a building’s facade is effectively turned into an instrument. Each window represents a sound illuminated with color which is played when struck by the beam of a flashlight.

The video shown here was captured at the Urban Art Festival, White Night of Bucharest, September 2008. Go to to see stills from the Bucharest event and other images of the exhibit applied to a building at the Spark Festival of Electronica Music and Arts, Minneapolis, March 2009.
