Land Chimes is a musical translation of topography. 100 Vertical chimes rise out of a rolling landscape, the pitch of each chime determined by its particular elevation. Visitors are invited to walk among the chimes, strike each with a stick and experience the musical footprint of the site. This piece was designed and built in collaboration with Joshua Lantzy.
Land Chimes has been raised twice: in 2015 for the Farm/Art DTour of Fermentation Fest in the beautiful Driftless region of Wisconsin, and in 2017 as a Featured Public Project at ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Read an article on the rural art renaissance in Wisconsin by Peter Rebhahn here.
