Musical Spheres is a site-specific installation referencing the shared history of Angel Place as a musical precinct. Beginning with the historic 1880s Palings Building and its business that imported and manufactured pianos and sheet music and continuing through to the present-day City Recital Hall. Echoing the action of hammers hitting piano strings and the movement of musical notes on a score, this kinetic artwork is a dynamic field of contrapuntal coloured musical forms. The circular forms slowly move up and down, playing the air, complementing the constant movement of people in and out of the space; referencing music through movement rather than sound.
