Organ of Corti, National Cycle Network - route 45

Gloucestershire, Cotswold Water Park, Lake 6, Gateway Centre: Monday 15th – Wednesday 17th August 

Worcester, River Severn, Diglis Weir: Friday 19th – Sunday 21st August

Conceived and made by Liminal an architect/musician partnership Organ of Corti is a four metre high, visually transparent sonic crystal that takes sounds from the environment in which it is placed and recycles them, without adding any noise of its own. Winner of the PRS for music Foundation’s New Music Award 2010, this experimental instrument makes us reconsider the sounds that surround us.
