Music in the Rain

Rain is one of my favorite things (right up there with kittens and unicorns), I love the earthy smell that rises  in the air and the excuse to wear my pink polka dot wellies from J.Crew. My hair, however is not such a fan, but you can’t have everything.

When I spotted this rain wall in an artsy neighborhood of Dresden, Germany, I was instantly fascinated. In theory, the funnels act as an elaborate drainage system to collect rainwater and make music at the same time. I couldn’t find a YouTube video to verify this, but it definitely seems like a place to stop if you’re in the area.

According to AtlasObscura:

When the rain starts to fall, this colorful drain and gutter system attached to the outside of a building in the Neustadt Kunsthofpassage turn into charming musical instruments. The Funnel Wall is one of the strangest and most enjoyable attractions in Dresden’s student district in the new town. Designed by Christoph Roßner, Annette Paul, and Andre Tempel who all live in the building. This one of a kind building was inspired by Rube Goldberg Machine and makes an emphasis on the pure orchestra sound of the rain.
