Kinetic Sculpture > Sound Tubes

The Chicago Children's Museum commissioned this sound sculpture which resided in the museum lobby from 2008 to 2012. It featured 20 free hanging tubes with speakers mounted inside, playing a variety of field recordings from the Favorite Chicago Sounds collection.

The Museum allowed us to expand our collection by facilitating interaction with its affiliated youth groups. Project Coordinator Sarah Lu visited youth groups around the city, introduced them to field recording, and collected their favorite sounds to add to our catalog.
