Watch: A Symphony Of Lullabies, Played By 40 Jogging Mice

Fabio Di Salvo and Bernardo Vercelli have a way with coaxing interesting harmonies out of unexpected sources. Known together as Quiet Ensemble, they’ve elicited audible frequencies from pears and pineapples. (Spolier alert: The fruits sound a lot like techno), and their latest endeavor allowed mice to remix works by famous composers.)

Orchestra Da Camera is a musical installation in which the 40 elements of the chamber are mice running on their wheels.
Each wheel its connected to a carillon and when it turns the carillon starts playing its musical note.
The great number of carillons and the random actions of the living creatures makes unrecognizable the melodies (lullabies by Brahms, Schubert and Mozart ) creating an unexpected musical carpet determined by the mice.

Orchestra da Camera è un installazione musicale dove i 40 elementi dell’orchestra sono dei topolini che corrono sulle proprie ruote.
Ogni ruota è collegata a un carillon che quando gira, inizia a suonare le proprie note musicali. Il grande numero di carillon e le azioni casuali degli esseri viventi rende irriconoscibili le melodie (ninne nanne di Brahms, Schubert e Mozart) che creano un tappeto musicale inaspettato, determinato esclusivamente dai topolini.

Technology and nature. Randomness and control. 
The revelation of what is insignificant as a poetic and marvelous moment. 
A reflection upon the life track, invisible paths that tell the story of a living being’s passage on earth. The passage of 25 snails makes in real time an endless light painting, made exclusively by the walking of the small animals. At the end of each day we’ll have a totally different light-painting.

John Cage’s is a concert orchestrated by 12-birds in cages.

The sound compositions are determined solely by the contact that the birds have with the metal cages that encloses them, creating dense and complex sound carpet and rhythmics revealing the horror of the cage it self and the musicality hidden inside.

We see six white cages placed a few inches from each other each containing two little birds. From each cage goes down the floor an intricate net of black cables used to illuminate and reveal the sounds,   creating a strong tension, as for the hear that for the eye.
