IN SITU is an interactive audio-architectural installation, which transforms the Helsinki Winter Garden greenhouse (Talvipuutarha) into a gigantic musical instrument. For two weeks in the Autumn 2016, the entire glass structure of the Winter Garden is turned into a multi-channel sonic space. Vibration speakers attached to the building’s glass walls convert the glass panels into speakers. The compositional work, the unique architecture and acoustics of the greenhouse, as well as the strong presence of plants all contribute to the creation of an extraordinary soundscape.

IN SITU is a unique sound art piece by its original concept, its architectural nature and its dimensions. It constitutes the Finnish premiere for a whole building being transformed into a musical instrument.
