Watch Music Being Downloaded On A Chinese Skyscraper

A project that visualises music downloads in real time has been installed on the exterior of A8 Music Group’s new office tower in downtown Shenzhen, China.

The group collaborated with an architectural studio, UNIT to design the elaborate high-rise where form would follow function. It takes the shape of sound waves and has a LED lighting system build into it’s structure. As A8’s users download music, the waveforms and data of the sound files are visualised to the public on a tremendous scale.

The LEDs are organised like a Scriaban keyboard with each musical tone being associated with an different colour.
