Dithyrambalina - a bohemian musical village based in New Orleans - is the creation of Brooklyn based street artist Swoon.
It started out as a prototype called ‘Music Box’. "Constructed from the salvaged remains of an ancient cottage, invented instruments were embedded into the walls, ceilings, floors and staircases of musical structures created by 25 collaborating artists, inventors and tinkers. Performed on by over 70 world-class musicians for orchestral concerts and attended by over 15,000 visitors & 500+students, The Music Box captured the hearts of the New Orleans community."
The Music Box has now closed, but 2014 will see the creation of five new musical houses, working towards securing a perfect and permanent site for Dithyrambalina in New Orleans.
