Goldemberg said:

“Our desire to create unusual instruments emerged when we realized the aesthetic and technical issues we were facing as architects did not differ much from those of musicians and composers.”

3 performers will play live the 5 instruments throughout the day in what promises to be an audience of thousands.
The framework itself is also another instrument which produces a drone, sonic environment that highlights the radical design of these instruments.
