The Symphonic House
The Symphonic House is an interesting project that aims to integrate music with architecture. The experimenters, architect David Hanawalt and sonic installation artist Bill Close, have done this by building strings right into the structure.
When the instrument is played the Main room is alive with the pure tones of long stringed vibration. This vibration is transferred into the beams and walls of the main room. This literally puts both the listener and the player inside the resonant chamber of the instrument. It is the ultimate in surround sound as the architecture is the instrument.
