The Sky Orchestra is an ongoing research project and experimental artwork bringing together performance and music to create visual audio installations within the air and within the mind. Sky Orchestra are developing music specifically for sleeping people which is delivered out of the sky. Created by artist Luke Jerram, the balloons take off at dawn and dusk with speakers attached, creating a massive audio landscape.
