The Illumaphonium: HALO

Illumaphonium is a dynamic and interactive, multi sensory, music making installation – the first of its kind.

Created by musician and inventor Michael Davis, the semi acoustic, semi automatic, multi-player musical sculpture stands over three and a half meters tall and consists of more than two hundred illuminated chime bars. Each of which respond to touch, with ever changing patterns of light and sound, spreading out like waves over the giant instruments surface, bringing people together into a fun and spontaneous music making experience.
