Don’t tune out the Gardner Museum’s new sound art installations
Boston Magazine - 05/23/2017
The public installation “Harmonic Conduits” connects two of these urban landscapes through their sounds. Ruggles Station and Haley House Bakery Café in Lower Roxbury each have the sounds of their environments recorded, and then transmitted to each other through “tuning tubes” and played aloud live. Additionally, sounds from Northeastern University’s campus will play at the Roxbury side of Ruggles station. “Harmonic Conduits” is a collaboration between the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Northeastern University, Haley House Bakery Café, and the MBTA, and it was created by sound artists Bruce Odland and Sam Auinger.
