A Scale Model of the City of Eindhoven, Netherlands Built Around a Cylinder and Used to Played a Piano

Artist Akko Goldenbeld has created Stadsmuziek (City Music), a scale model of the city of Eindhoven, Netherlands built around a cylinder that is then turned to play a piano.

Placed on a revolving wooden cylinder the buildings set little hammers in motion that play the keys of a piano. And turning and turning, the city makes its voice heard: from loud to soft, long to short, high-pitched to low, translating the urban developers’ three-dimensional reality into an aural experience.
