'SYMPHONY in D MINOR' PHILADELPHIA OCT.20 - DEC. 2, 2012 from Patrick Gallagher on Vimeo.
'Symphony in D Minor' is the the result of an intensive 1 1/2 year collaboration between Husband and wife team Chris Klapper and Patrick Gallagher. A large scale series of hand made kinetic sculptures using cast resin, steel, sound and video. It is an interactive installation that creates a changing environmental experience and aleatoric music composition where the viewer becomes both musician and conductor of a thunderstorm.
Inspired by the ARCUS CLOUD, the large rolling cloud formations that precede massive thunderstorms, the 22 ft X 5 ft diameter cylindrical forms move through the air when pushed by the viewers.
Each sculpture is an individual instrument activating visual and sound elements of a thunderstorm. The viewer can compose a cacophony of sound using variations of thunder, wind, rain and lightning or choose to hear the subtle breeze of an isolated wind far away.
