Chime Creator Holds Lunchtime Performance on Thursday, July 21

Grab your lunch and enjoy a free live performance outside City Hall with Dan Gottwald, one of the artists who created Chime, the interactive sound sculpture on display at King Plaza. It was designed by Gottwald and Scott Watkins to allow for physical interaction by multiple users at once. 

On Thursday, July 21 from 12-1 p.m., electronic musician Will Gluck will join Gottwald to perform a piece specifically composed for Chime.

Since the temporary public artwork went on display in May, users have created their own musical experience by pushing the large curved panels that make up the outer walls of the Chime sculpture. That then activates the pendulums hanging inside to create the melodic sounds.

Chime is on display until August 8 and is part of a series of public art installations in King Plaza, offering new rotating exhibitions on an ongoing basis.
