The HVAC Music Box is a sound sculpture that uses the idea of an HVAC unit as a resonator to circulate the sound of music boxes that are activated by viewers. The composition in the music box is an original piece that is on a continuous loop that is only advanced by turning the knobs. This is a manual kinetic sculpture. The piece was made for a site specific group show called Sequence of Waves that was installed at the St. Cecilia Convent in Greenpoint, NY for one day only.
