These sculptures represent Harry Bertoia's formation of Sonambient. SonambientĀ® was Bertoia's term to describe the spatial and tonal environment created by these sound sculptures. Harry Bertoia created these sculptures of different shapes, length and thickness in order to achieve a range of gentle and sharp sounds. He experimented as a way to seek harmonic balance with the metal, resulting in pure, unique tones. When touched, struck or brushed, these sculptures became abstractions of sound as they sway and knock against one another. The sounds are organic and mysterious, as tones resonate and flow into each other.
