The Curve Harp stands at six feet tall, and has two banks of twelve strings that can run hundreds of feet and attach to architecture. It has a rich, deep tonality, and has traveled to places like Singapore, Grand Cayman, and Disney Hall for performances.
Luke creates invented instruments. He designs and fabricates sonic sculptures: modern long-string instruments and percussive devices that create tonalities that don't readily exist in traditional instruments.
Drawing on his degree in fine art, and his work with the critically acclaimed performance ensemble String Theory, Luke designs and creates sonic sculptures and invented instruments for live performances, freelance design commissions, and private residencies.
String Theory is a collaborative ensemble of musicians and dancers that utilize invented instruments and sonic sculpture to create their unique performance landscape and sonic footprint. They are critically acclaimed for their large scale performance installations that transform environments and architecture into giant musical instruments.
String Theory has been the active vehicle and performance entity with which Luke has been able to employ hundreds of different architectural installations and transformations. String Theory has had the great fortune to design and create installations to buildings by many of the world's most esteemed architects:
Santiago Calatrava Frank Gehry Richar Meier
Arata Isozaki Christoph Kapeller Minoru Yamasaki
Cesar Pelli Renzo Zecchetto Architects
Louis Kahn Frank Lloyd Wright Mies Van Der Rohe
