It's rather soothing when the wife happens to be playing Philip Glass in the background.

Funny, I was thinking that if I were the architect I'd have had to ruin it with a crayzee literal soundtrack. You Spin Me Right Round, the Beatles (of course) talking about revolutions. Something like that....

I'd forgotten about that. It really is rather good.
The fact of it being over a Yates's adds a very special glory to its discombobulating motions... Maybe I'll risk a trip back into the ancestral Badlands for a closer look...

Am told it uses fairground-type engineering so a good Walzer track like YSMRR would be appropriate. ;)

philip glass is always a good soundtrack, to anything.

I was going to offer a prize for the first sarky comment about Yates' Wine Bar. Congratulations! Have you been to see it Hildegard? Somehow it had passed me by so V surprised me by taking me that way earlier. So I got the full "Surprise!" effect.

Parabolichobo, the Philip Glass (it was the soundtrack to The Hours) only partially displaced my urge to hum Dead or Alive.

Harimanjaro, I think that's the intent.

Not been, saw it on tv when it was first installed. Was more benign amusement than sarky - like Hari says, there's something a bit woozy about it, so, yes, there's the Blobvision™ reference, but as Yates's the building was associated with enjoyment & diversion, and there's the fact that, "Have you seen what they've done to the old Yates's?" might draw in audiences less intrigued by, "Have you seen the installation in the Bluecoat?" so doing this to it seemed appropriate in lots of ways...

I would also imagine this is the sort of installation that would only work with a building in a state of disrepair.

I was being less highbrow and trying to think of jokes about Yates Wine Lodge. There's another one not far away. It's predictably lairy.

Haha, I took a picture of that AGES ago and have being meaning to post it to find out why it was there! Turns out it was art!
