Sonitum Horarium (BE)

  • Orpheus Institute

The sound of sand (installation)

In Sonitum Horarium, Hans Beckers discovers how to make music out of sand. Desert sand from different continents runs through specially designed hourglasses and falls into different sounding collection boxes. The fascinating sounds from this ‘sand organ’ are further enriched by the electronic sound installation. Did you think that sand and time were intangible? Walk into a new sound world and discover the musical power of sand!
