Living With House Music

Imagine building a musical house where the architecture is the instrument. That’s exactly what the Wege family have done by commissioning architect David Hanawalt and sonic installation artist Bill Close to create an environmental musical instrument.

The house features several giant stringed instruments that when touched with gloved hands create vibrations that cause the architecture to resonate and produce a range of harmonic tones.

Take a guided tour using audio, video, pictures and text demonstrating the home grown sounds at Symphonic House.
