Shanties and Structures

Photo by Morgan Sasser

The Music Box village is a collection of shacks and shanties that have been purpose-built to house invented instruments. Visual artists collaborated with sound artists to create these sound sculptures.The vast majority of building materials came from an 18th century Creole Cottage that stood on this same site. Below is a series of photographers impressions of the village.
