The Drone Organ

is a dreammachine/soundinstallation which transforms the sounds of cities, fireworks, motorways into a drone sound. it is made out of two long pipes, no effects and no electronics are beeing used. after a while the installation becomes a part of your body and changes the perception of the listener. each city plays its own symphony and humans, animals, cars are the musicians.
