On the magnificent staircase featuring classical wall and ceiling mouldings, you were initially greeted by the "Dancing Vases". This continues with the blue suspended sound installation which you'll pass three times on your way to the 1st floor.
These rotating vases symbolise movement in the air – they remind us of tornados, which only occur when layers of cold and warm air shift.
Please feel free to touch or place your ear on these blue sound panels. This installation, with its natural noises, leads us into the world of sound, preparing us both visually and aurally for a musical journey.
Maybe the wind and the sea? You'll come across this primal sound on the 2nd floor, where you'll be able to analyse it in more detail.
