Brass Musical Instruments in Modern Art, Design and Decorating

The brass horns in the sculpture of Steve Parker make music. Activated by touch, the brass musical instruments delight listeners with beautiful recordings. Ghost Box is a creative wall sculpture featuring pieces of brass horns arranged in the design of a drawing of a WWII-era radio. Visitors are encouraged to wear the attached headphones and gently touch any part of the metal to enjoy several recorded sounds.

Brass musical instruments look captivating. The unique brass horns arrangement brings the rhythmic beat of Morse Code, symphonic music, and familiar sounds of an old radio transmission. Every touch is a surprise. A  recording of a single note creates an illusion of making sound by delicate touch.
