THE CLOUD AS THE MODEL OF PERSONALITY (on philisophy of music)
LAB GARDEN, 3 Obukha per.
It was considered long ago that the model of the ideal personality is comparable to model of the ideal sky. Since Pythogoras this conception has changed. Today the main symbolical image of sky with stars on it is substituted for sky in clouds. During 10 thousand years stars changed although invisibly, but cloudy forms vary constantly and obviously. Stability loses a priority before change.
This summer you can enjoy the sophisticated and unique CLOUD HARP installation by Nicolas Reeves (Canada). The instrument is the result of a research in electronics, acoustics, and programming. It is a physical sculpture containing a technological system that, by means of an infrared laser beam 8 kilometers high, reads the structure of clouds and then transforms this reading into musical sequences. Musical sequences by CLOUD HARP gives a new sensation of sky, now it can be experienced and understood not only visually but also aurally.
