The house comprises multiple connected living spaces, each with its own blueprint and musical qualities. It can be viewed as a complex instrument that resounds with the noises of everyday life, its location, the weather it shelters us from and as a collection of resonating chambers, each tuned according to its size, shape and material. These qualities are explored in 173 Middle Street, intended as a musical portrait of a home. The music is composed using the resonant frequencies of rooms and performed throughout the house by a small classical ensemble of flute, cor anglais and cello.
