this is not my beautiful house

it’s more of a large (previously-)abandoned building in lower-manhattan, turned into a musical instrument by David Byrne. pretty much, solenoids are used to vibrate different structural elements within the building, and by playing keys on an organ set up in the center of the space, one can actually create music out of the structure itself. being inside when an actual musician is playing is experience I would really like to have.
