David Byrne’s Building-sized Instrument


David Byrne Invites Participation

Dateline TWIN CITIES. David Byrne is back in town, but this time he’ll be sitting back and letting us make the music. Alongside Peter Remes, founder of First & First Creative Real Estate, Byrne is bringing Play The Building to Minnesota.

Play The Building is a art installation that focuses on old buildings and allows visitors to “play” the building through an organ that has wires attached that, in turn, ping, bang and vibrate different parts of the building to create a sound.

The Current’s Morning Show sat down with Peter Remes and David Byrne to chat about how the project came into fruition, why Minnesota was the chosen location for Byrne’s most recent project and what the heck we can expect from Play the Building.

Thanks to Annette Joy for finding this!
