Imagine walking through a Japanese forest and hearing the sound of Bach whistling in the air among the trees and songs of birds. Despite sounding like a fantasy, this experience has recently become a reality, thanks to Creative Director Morihiro Harano and his team at Mori Inc.

Collaborating with the carpenter Mitsuo Tsuda and sound engineer Kenjiro Matsuo, Mori Inc. constructed and placed an enormous xylophone that plays Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring—the final movement in Bach’s Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben cantata

Constructed from hundreds of pieces of different sized wood, the xylophone produces sound when it’s struck by a cascading wooden ball placed at the top of the instrument.  

Hear the sounds of this musical wonder…
