When Harry was installing this, he would pluck each wire and listen carefully to determine if the tension was right. One onlooker commented that it was like tuning a giant violin.

Sonolevitation, 2007, is a microgravity performance and installation utilizing gold slivers hovering in space from varying speeds of multiple sound waves. Within a transparent chamber filled with a gas-infused liquid, sound waves are  transformed into a liquid by means of a phenomenon known as somoluminescence. While adapting to the absolute darkness surrounding the installation, one gradually perceives the details and configurations of glowing sound fields.
