Six interactive sound sculptures designed installed at Mt. Greenwood Park inn Chicago, Illinois. The interactive sculptural instruments are designed to engage the creative minds of everyone. The sound of each piece is tuned to work in concert with the other pieces.
It was the artist's intention to integrate the form into the existing design, to compliment and accentuate. The pieces reference the spiral motif of the park as well as musical symbols: the treble clef in and Spiral Bell the base clef in Cosmos and spherical note shapes in the forms of the drums, rainmaker, and gong.
Chicago sculptor Jim Brenner and sound artist Jake Worley-Hood worked with the Chicago Park District and Chicago Public Art Group to create the sound sculptures.
