Two of the original 2015 musical cubes in Rosslyn Chapel have
been destroyed or damaged over time to such a degree that the patterns they produce are no longer visible. Thus the musical tones they represent are now unknown. As part of an exhibition at Sorø Art Museum, I collaborated with two
musicians and together we found the tritone interval corresponding to this specific exhibition space, its properties and the material from which it is constructed (in this case concrete). These tones formed the basis for a musical composition performed on the opening evening of the exhibition. Two cubes, corresponding to those in Rosslyn Chapel, were constructed and decorated with the patterns of these new musical tones.
