Gardens of Sound
Our outdoor sonic sculptures stimulate an innate curiosity, with beauty so embedded most anyone is able to make immediate magical sounds. Many are also designed for the discovery of effortless harmony in groups of three.
Some installations also combine an unpredictable kinetic movement, which encourages our brain to relax normal ways of seeing, for an experience of dropping behind the waterfall of thinking.
Gardens of Sound is the general term we use to refer outdoor sonic installations that provide a way individuals, or small groups of people can create interesting or beautiful sounds with no musical training.
The installations are designed to enable curiosity and fun and expand ones experience of listening and even oneself.
Gardens of Sound can also provide a sense of threshold between areas of land and building structures. Depending on many parameters they can also provide a sense of pilgrimage from one area to another.
Together with our partner Alan Tower we are currently developing a project 12 Stations of Meditation, for the Allegretto Vineyard Resort, a hotel art resort in Paso Robles, CA. Each station is connected to a Zodiac sign and will include an interactive sonic art installation for creating curiosity and fun along with fostering a meditative focus. In November 2021, the first of these installations was build: The Bamboo Soundforest at Leo.
