Keith Attenborough explains Organ of Corti

Wednesday 8th June 2011

Organ of Corti by liminal is four-metre high sonic crystal which filters and manipulates sounds in its environment, without adding any noise of its own.

In the first of a series of Q&As, we asked Keith Attenborough, research professor at The Open University to explain how Organ of Corti will work and why there will be two different layouts for the 96 transparent tubes which make up the body of the instrument.

Organ of Corti will be unveiled at the City of London Festival on July 1st, outside St Paul’s Cathedral, Carter Lane Gardens. For more information about the UK tour this summer, including the three other locations which Organ of Corti will visit and supporting events, become a fan on facebook.

Organ of Corti is the winner of PRS for Music Foundation’s New Music Award 2010.
