A Wall That Plays Music When It Rains


Atlas Obscura shows a wall in Dresden, Germany, that  “when the rain starts to fall, this colorful drain and gutter system attached to the outside of a building in the Neustadt Kunsthofpassage turn into charming musical instruments. The Funnel Wall is one of the strangest and most enjoyable attractions in Dresden’s student district in the new town. 

Kunsthofpassage is a series of courtyards as an art experiment by the tenants of the apartments on which the installation works. It is a creation of sculptor Annette Paul and designers Christoph Rossner and Andre Tempel, who were inspired by Rube Goldberg Machine, converting  rainfall into a fabulous orchestra.

The other installations in the Kunsthofpassage  include Courtyard of Light, Courtyard of Animals and Courtyard of the Metamorphoses.
