An impressive monumental musical installation by the British composer and sound artist Ray Lee consists of kinetic sound sculptures. Above the audience rises a series of metal tripods on which are rotating arms. At the end of each arm, speakers emit finely tuned musical tones, creating a pulsating and harmonious hum and a hypnotic call to everyone present. The red lights at the end of the arms create an effect of a whirling swarm of fireflies or planets on the move, like enchanting orbits of colour.
The intersecting light creates circles above the heads of the audience, and the combined chorus of rotating sounds creates a cohesive harmonious whole, a syrupy flow which at the same time is inspiring and enchanting.
