SONICPOND: HISTORY IN WATER

By The OpenLab Network

       

(Back to Art on the Grounds)

Using a series of electronically activated valves, SonicSENSE will "play" the ponds situated along one of Montalvo's walking paths adjacent to the Front Lawn. They will create a sound composition that uses the sound of the water falling as "notes." Visitors can linger at either of two arbors, or listening posts, on each end of the pond and their passing movements will also activate sounds.
