Michael Davis: Illumaphonium

Sponsored by:

Make the Illumaphonium chime in Grosvenor Square!

Illumaphonium is a dynamic and interactive, multi-sensory, music-making installation – the first of its kind. Created by musician and inventor Michael Davis (UK), the semi-acoustic, semi-automatic, multi-player musical sculpture stands at a height of 3.5m (11.5ft), and consists of more than a hundred illuminated chime bars. Each of these chimes respond to touch, with ever-changing patterns of light and sound, spreading out like waves over the giant instrument’s surface, and bringing people together into a fun and spontaneous music-making experience.

This installation was previously in Mount Street.

What’s nearby?

Take a stroll in nearby Hyde Park before visiting the many Mayfair installations during Lumiere London. If you’re peckish, head to JW Steakhouse for some dry-aged prime beef, salads and seafood.

The programme may be subject to change or cancellation due to circumstances beyond the event organiser's control.
