Harmonic Hendrix dances to architecture 

On March 9, with the help of the Hendrix College Dance Department, architect/artist/composer Christopher Janney will prove just how easy it is to dance to architecture. The occasion is a small unveiling of the latest of Janney's urban musical series, "Harmonic Pass: Hendrix." Contained inside the two tunnels of the underpass beneath Harkrider Street that connect Hendrix's main campus to its athletic complex, the "Harmonic Pass," or as students voted to call it, "The Grotto," is motion-activated sound and light sculpture. Each tunnel has 10 touch sensors, 17 computer-controlled LED lights and five speakers that will emit a group of harmonic tones, which, according to Hendrix's Rob O'Connor, will harmonize in the middle opening where the two tunnels meet.

The installation was paid for by an anonymous donor and the senior class gift of the class of 2010. Hendrix's O'Conner said he hopes "it's something the public will enjoy."
