Imposing Monument designed by Eila Hiltunen and unveiled on the 7th of September 1967 in the Sibelius park in Helsinki.It is “composed” of  almost 600 hollow steel pipes weighing 24 tonnes and resembling waves transmitting musical notes to the infinite firmament where they will live for ever …  I just love his symphonies and his chamber music.

It also gives me great pleasure to include this New York Times excerpt I found on Charlotte’s wondrous post :

http://charlottehoatherblog.com/2014/01/22/caught-in-a-moment-of-preparation/comment-page-1/#comment-9884

“Nowadays, we tend to rely on sound rather than shape. But music is not about sound. Sound is simply its material, (as paint is for painting). What music is about is gesture, colour, shape, form and, especially, emotional intensity.” [The New York Times, Rodger Norrington. 2003].

    • Thank you Su ! I have just finished reading M.Smither -Colour can be Sound .One can very easily see or feel the connections and experience the phenomenon of synaesthesia.No wonder you enjoyed the exhibition.Most interesting.Isn’t it ? I strongly believe in the direct relation and connection of Sound-Music- Architecture.
      Music is maths and maths is architecture and so on.


      A note is a point and a beat is a line and so on …
      That’s why I decided to interrelate the rest of the photos in my post.
