It's a step in the right direction, and hopefully like the musical sea wall, someone will invent more musical tones!

I don't know why, but I expected it to sound nicer, more musical. Looks fantastic though.

I'm intrigued by the short run - seems to start at windowsill level on 2nd floor with a funnel, with dirty gunk around the funnel. Any idea?

Lovely - Sonically and Visually.

I would love to try the little cafe and see if their food is as creative.

of course I have no idea...

Are you writing about the funnel at the window? Looks non productive to me. Ornamental, so maybe that has a plant in it?

Inside the windows seem to be another set of windows. ?

I imagine there are a lot of tourists in the area. There are a few other unique building facades on the street as well.

Interesting...

I would say it sounded more like applause from an audience; a lot of people clapping their hands.

It was/is certainly very creative.

Lilylady,

I believe the "windows in windows" are the reflections of the building across the street.

Dave B - There is no "point" other than it is a work of art.

It's raining here in Phoenix right now. Sounds about the same. Neet design though. I don't think my HOA would approve of the color scheme.

The only unpleasant aspect is the voiceover in the video. I just want to listen to the rain, not some dude mumbling in what I think is German. Other than that the pictures and video are very cool, thanks for posting.
