As a part of the 92Y Seeing Music festival in New York, architect and engineer Gabriel Calatrava has created a moving installation that “illuminates and interprets the Brentano String Quartet’s live performance of J.S. Bach’s The Art of the Fugue.” Operated by a dance corps, the set design “provides audiences with a new way to experience and interpret the music they hear on stage, while allowing various art forms to complement and inform each other.”

Drawing from the ideas of Bach’s fugal lines, the strings on musical instruments, and the children’s game Cat’s Cradle, Calatrava’s installation shifts through a series of configurations created by the crossing, stretching, and compressing of strings.
