Terpsichore for Kansas City: Sound and Light Installation in a Garage

Nov 23, 2011

Parking garages in Kansas City are infused with art - from the light and sound work called Pulse, next to City Hall; to the dancing lights in the underground garage at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art from a reflecting pool overhead. In the new parking garage at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, there's a public art installation activated by movement.

Kansas City, Mo – Original music pipes out of more than a hundred speakers, and four stories of lights radiate patterns of blue and white. For a series called "Artists in their Own Words," KCUR's Laura Spencer met up with composer David Moulton and artist Lajos Hoder during the installation.
