Full Steam

Geoff Manaugh at the architectural blog BLDGBLOG just posted some video of steam tunnels in Brooklyn turned into a giant musical instrument by the Pratt Instrument on New Year's Eve. Apparently this is a yearly event, and he describes it as "somewhere between subterranean calliope and mutant wave organ."

He goes on to discuss the idea of attaching musical instrument parts to city infrastructure to create one massive instrument. Hey, the U of A has a huge steam plant, right?
