The installation is like a totem-pole, its giant strings create ancient sounds. It is more than a huge instrument, it is a vivid structure, that widens the area of perception through the whole area, while its vibrating wooden waves search for the balance among people. The creators consulted with sound professionals and and instrument makers, but they didn’t have any useful advice because of the size of the structure. The archtects realized that the structure has its own personality and this gives its unique voice. It is possible to sneak inside the „creature” to try how it feels to listen to music from the inside of an instrument.
Stanley Kubrick cured all hardship of the civilization with monolith therapy In the 2001 Space Odyssey. The sharp black object was there at all stages. The receipt worked perfectly trough 141 minutes, so we thought this time we will throw a life-belt among the hills of Csórompuszta. Our landscape instrument as an ancient totem-pole will bring together builders of all nations to collective jam sessions, expanding the border of senses far beyond our apparent ambience. Participants will experiment with the the waves of the vibrant wood to stimulate the sensible balance of nature and the human being.
