The Eiffel Tower has inspired countless t-shirts, souvenirs and sentimental works of art. A new Kickstarter project aims to turn the iron and lattice landmark into a gigantic instrument. That’s the dream of composer Joseph Bertolozzi, who proved that he can tackle projects on a mammoth scale when he wired and then played New York’s Mid Hudson Bridge.
Bertolozzi’s “Tower Music” project aims to unleash the voice of the Eiffel Tower to coincide with its 125th anniversary celebration in 2014. The project has already been cleared by the site’s administrators. Now, he’s got to find a way to pay for it.
