Reader Matt Fellers writes, “I saw this amazing installation at the Church of San Lorenzo in Venice Italy this summer.”
Cordiox, by Ariel Guzik, is a complex machine, four meters in height, which describes the environment through sound. This is due to its two complimentary elements: on one hand, 180 long, tense chords distributed throughout three harps, and on the other, a unique large cast cylinder made of pure quartz. This machine emits a subtle, tonally expansive crystalline cadence, thereby creating a unique listening experience.
Here’s a video of Cordiox:

The installation will be displayed through November 24, 2013.
