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 3.5 meters (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.
Take a stroll in nearby Hyde Park before visiting the many Mayfair installations during Lumiere London. If you’re peckish, head to JW Steakhouse on Park Lane 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.
Lumiere London is a free festival produced by Artichoke - a small charity with big ideas. Artichoke creates art for the enjoyment and wellbeing of millions of people. Your donations enable them to help keep their events free and support their work around the UK.
