David Byrne Web Site Features Robert Gomez Playing--No Kidding--A Building
Talking Heads mastermind David Byrne has created a sound installation at the Roundhouse arts venue in London called Playing The Building which is exactly what the name implies. Visitors can use a modified pump organ that uses wind, vibration and striking against the 160-year-old building's structure to create tones.
Using sampled sounds from the installation, Denton's own Robert Gomez created a beautiful, haunting instrumental called "Hunting Song." Byrne liked it so much he posted it on his site. Give it a listen.
