Pneumaphone

Lincoln Center welcomes young audiences with autism and other developmental disabilities to Big Umbrella Festival's Pneumaphone installation. 

Presented in collaboration with Logos Foundation. Logos Foundation, founded in 1968, is a research and production center for experimental music, music robotics and audio art, based in Ghent, Belgium. The Pneumaphone installation is designed by Godfried-Willem Raes.

Pneumaphone is a collection of pneumatically driven soundsculptures: flutes, single reeds, lips, reeds, double reeds, mirlitons, water organs, and bladder membranes make up the individual voice of each pneumaphone. By sitting, lying, rolling or rocking on pillows, participants take part in music-making as the air from the pillows travels through the musical instrument.
