The structure of a village, abandoned in the 19th century, provides the basis for the arrangement of the strings. 13 house ruins on a surface of 350m x 100m are linked through strings up to 120m long. The constant coastal wind produces sustainded sounds. Thus, the Deserted Village became a large outdoor, public instrument for the duration of a symposium, which all were welcome to play.
