sky orchestra

What a creative idea to encourage active, communal listening.
There is something so nostalgic and childlike about hot air balloons.
Beethoven or Mozart may have been nicer,
but I still like the idea.

Yesterday, Londoners found themselves awoken by a strange ethereal soundtrack cast across the city. Seven hot-air balloons set off from Southwark Park towards Canary Wharf and Tower Bridge in the early hours of the morning, playing a composition by Dan Jones. The balloons also take off today and tomorrow, all to mark the year running up to the Olympics, and the host of cultural events it promises.
