Rediscovering Harry Bertoia, sculptor and ambient pioneer
Though his furniture designs remain his best known work (much in the same way that Charles and Ray Eames – whom Bertoia met through the famed Cranbook Academy of Art – were known for their chairs above all else), Bertoia’s interest in the possibilities of sound became his greatest passion, manifesting in numerous “sounding sculptures” displayed at various locations throughout the US.

Reviving the Ghostly Sounds of Maryanne Amacher - The New York Times
“It had texture,” the composer George Lewis said recently, recalling the very loud yet very subtle electronic music of Maryanne Amacher. “It had ghost things inside. I think she actually said, ‘You have to listen for the ghosts.’ And then once you started hearing them, they were always there.”
