Music of the Spheres uses mathematics, and attempts to demonstrate that everything, including the Earth and planets, produce a resonant pitch. Gareth Ziggy is an artist primarily working with sound.
The piece consists of an interactive spinning globe that emits frequencies and will light up in specific locations depending on sounds made by the viewer. In harmony with the piece the viewer becomes part of the celestial symphony that is ever present but normally inaudible to the human ear. The artist also links the use of sound by humans throughout the ages to produce certain effects, such as healing the body and building the Great Pyramid of Giza through to torture methods used by the American military and shopkeepers playing specific tones to drive teenagers away from hanging around outside their premises.
