"I remember when I was a nasty kid stomping sticks on neighbors fences. I was nasty and noisy but the multimedia artist and composer Yuval Avital (I bet he did what I did when he was a child) transformed a noisy game into a poetic sound sculpture: Open Fence." Barbara Musso

Interni magazine, 19 June 2017, Italy

"1km of iron, 12 tons of weight, 64 metres of length, 4 metres of height, over 320 tubular bells, 900 meters of stainless steel strings: the new artistic adventure of Yuval Avital bears the name of Open Fence, one of the biggest sound sculptures ever realized in Italy."

Who Wants to Play the Biggest Sound Sculpture in Italy?

Still glowing from the incredible experience of the Requiem Monumentale Part 1... A spectacular marching brass band that pumped life into the veins of the Monumental Cemetery of Milan; a transfixing choir that filled with pathos the solemn Famedio; an incredible staff; 1,500 spectators, and good weather: I couldn't have asked for more.

Now I'm getting ready for a new challenge: playing the biggest sound sculpture in Italy!! Starting from a steel fence of 357 tubes (for a total of 1km of steel!) realized by designer Dario Milana, on 21 June I'll transform this unique architectural object into a massive and collective percussion instrument. Handles, strings, weights and lots of enthusiasm: these are my ingredients to play Open Fence.

Want to try it? We are currently recruiting people for the Crowd Music Ensemble and we're looking for people who want to be part of the inauguration of a huge sound sculpture. The event will be on 21 June—come celebrate with me the solstice of summer at the East End Studios of Milan. It will be EPIC!
