An Italian devotee couple has created and installed a permanent “sound path” at the Museum of Sacred Art (MOSA) in Villa Vrindavana, near the city of Florence, home of the Italian renaissance. The installation was created by Madhava and Margherita at their Grotta Sonora, or “The Sounding Cave.”
Consisting of unique handmade gongs and other instruments, called “sound sculptures,” the sound path makes tours of MOSA an auditory as well as a visual experience. Different sounds in each room create different moods and provide a soundtrack to the Mahabharata and Ramayana paintings by Jnananjana Das and other ISKCON artists, as the tour guide narrates the story of the ancient epics.
Members of the public can now have the experience at Villa Vrindavana’s MOSA, which is open with COVID restrictions in place every Saturday and Sunday from 10:30am to 1:00pm, and from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. The project is part of a vision by Mahaprabhu Das, International Director of MOSA (which also has branches in Belgium and Tenerife), to create a full sensory experience which will soon include an olfactory component too.
