Memory and light 2

The Arvo Pärtinstallation at Belsay Hall – see yesterday's upload for information.
You can listen to his music plus poetry through headphones, which give a very private experience. I preferred without, with the music resonating in the horseshoe of glass slats.
Gregorian Chant for the 21st Century... (Alan)
Thanks for looking,
Moira

The insertion of a hat between ear and can won't do much for the sound quality!
But so long as he's happy...

He is hearing, but not listening.
Perhaps he is concerned about hygiene - using headphones which have been put to the ears of many others...

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”

Stimulating the senses, or trying to make sense of the connection?

Well observed Moira. I would love to listen to the Gregorian chant through those slats. I bet it sounds wonderful.
