VIDEO: Swimming pool transformed into giant musical instrument

An empty swimming pool in Glasgow has been transformed into a giant musical instrument by a couple of artists working under the name CØV.

The pair – real names, Florence To and Alex Menzies – have installed a combination of three bar chimes, violin bows, metal pipes and sheet metal in the pool to create an instrument that produces a variety of clanging metallic tones and haunting dirges. Which is great, if you like that type of thing.

The piece was on show as part of Sonica, a sonic arts programme held last October and November.

You can see the pool/instrument in action in the video below.
