The Entity
Built by Philip Blackburn, 1998

Most of us know Dr. Philip Blackburn as the creative force behind the Innova "Enclosures: Harry Partch" series, but his is a composer in his own right. Additionally, he has an interest in public installations, something he apparantly will (or does) refer to as Sonic Playgrounds. A while back, while I was semi-pleading for instruments to display, he sent me these photos of an installation he refered to as The Entity. His only notes were as follows:

"Here are some of the fruits of my labors. I'm setting them up for the public on Sept 25 at a new sculpture park near the capitol where the mayor will pontificate."

Looks like a fun place to play...
