    Wow. Try hitting play on all three of the videos, turning up the volume on your computer and zoning out. Sounds like a rainstorm. :)

    I played all three videos at the same time.
    It sounded like a rainstorm.

    staring at just the filler wire in the third video gives the impression that a circle has been formed out of the dc-motors. the rainstorm is incredible!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this before, very cool idea though. I’ve been to galleries and heard strange sounds mixed with footage on large projectors but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a ‘sound sculpture’ before. I bet it’s even better to be in the room at the same time.

    I saw/heard this installation a few months ago at the Vooruit in Ghent, Belgium, it was part of an exhibition there. I really loved it, the sound was really overwhelming, and yet the idea is so simple. it put a smile on my face :)
