Merlin’s Music, three 12 ft. tall sculptures, was originally an indoor installation that was interactive. Viewers could hear the musical sounds represented by the sculptures and the installations included dance performances where the choreography mimicked the shapes of the sculptures.
The music of Merlin’s Music is from the treble half, the top half, of the piano keyboard so higher, lighter and brighter sounds than the lower notes would be. The music is playful and joyous.
