The Violin Gate

The Violin Gate is located at the entrance to the heart of the city, it is a superb double arch decorated with a gigantic cello carved in the rock, which seems to have melted under the effect of natural erosion. This monumental portico, which looks like an ancient civilisation, is also flanked by huge scores engraved on the interior columns and on the steles of the building. In front of the gate, unrolled banners fluttering in the wind publish the latest events organised in the city. You will enter the city through the left arch of the cello, while on the right you will come face to face with the entrance to the Cosmic Scores Library.

Harp Trees - immense urban vegetal structures

Amongst these wonders, you will come across these strange plant harps which, like creeping ivy, intertwine with the façades of the buildings to create immense urban vegetal structures. When the young, flexible branches of these trees vibrate like a powerful rubber band, they produce the subtly sweet notes of a harp. If you go for a morning walk, you may see residents playing arpeggios by grabbing a few branches and vibrating them together to create chords and melodies as they walk.

Musician Shops

It's the oldest one in the world, still built in wood but still vibrating at the hours of the percusisons prayer. Under the hood of the minaret stands an enormous resonating wooden bassbox. When the percussion monk begins its beating , 15min of improvisation of prayers calling, the box responds immediately with its wooden sound. This archaic vibration wave makes it possible to produce easily in open air a trumpet of sound in very low frequencies. This event occurs everywhere in the city and looks like a call to prayer, excepted the fact that in this case the call is dedicated to the global universal rythmic energy of the world.

As a Doppler Bells moves away from hearing , the heard pitch ascends , and as bell moves closer to hearing , the heard pitch descend. When moved one inch away from your ear , the bell will sound E-flat sharp . And at the real high end, when the bells are about two inches away from your ear , it will sound B-flat sharp .
