Attaching harmonicas to the regular household fans, The Observatory attempt to create a chorus of drones from the fans, 'speaking' to one another in the Chord of Being

Chord of Being

The tritone is a restless interval, also known as "the devil in music". We've combined this interval of dissonance with the most consonant of western harmony, the perfect fifth, to create an all encompassing for what it is to be human.

When both intervals are superimposed, a minor 2nd relationship is found between F# and G, adding greater dissonance to the triad.
