Musician playing a keyboard integrated into the architecture of an unused part of the Battery Maritime Building (an old ferry terminal) in downtown Manhattan. Various structural elements of the building emit sounds corresponding to the keys. The keyboardist performed as part of an ensemble. “Playing the Building” is the name of the keyboard-building art installation (and thus the unique venue), which was created by former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne .
