Sky Orchestra is a performance artwork involving 7 hot air balloons with speakers attached creating a vast surround sound experience. Flying over a city at dawn the music is designed to sculpt the dreams of the sleeping public below.

Many thousands of people experience the Sky Orchestra event live as the balloons fly over their homes at dawn. The airborne project is both a vast spectacular performance as well as an intimate, personal experience. Through the use of surround sound, we aim to deliver a sculptural experience to the public, by lifting them into the creative space on the edge of sleep and then acoustically seeding their imaginations.

A form of provocative acoustic urban art, Sky Orchestra questions the boundaries of public artwork, private space and the ownership of the sky. Sky Orchestra is an artwork specifically designed to reach a broader audience than that visiting a gallery.
