The Sky Orchestra. WOW!


Elena M. Wagner

This morning Londoners have awoken to the sound of music emanating from The Sky Orchestra, heralding a year to go to the 2012 Olympics: 7 balloons took off, gradually rising to a height of around 500 feet, to be SEEN and HEARD as they float across the city’s skyline.

Toghether, the music from the balloons has created a massive, but graceful, sonic landscape: a musical wake up call or gentle lullaby. Better than dreaming. Simply … WOW!

The Sky Orchestra is a magnificent idea by the UK artist Luke Jerram.
