"Who's that tripping over my bridge?!" roared the troll. "It is I, the creator of elevator and massage room muzak, and I've come to have a tinkle on your bridge's underbelly-pipes!"

With 600 pipes hanging from the bridge, located in Aarhus, Denmark, CZWG's Chimecco sculpture must be pretty popular with billy goat gruffs, too. [Mark Nixon via Dezeen]

Side-note: I had no idea this old nursery rhyme was so flippin' dark.

A little more info from the original article:

"gold-anodized aluminium pipes move freely in the breeze, sounding like a traditional wind chime when they collide."

"People on the bridge can touch interactive nodes on its surface to activate the chimes in a controlled order, playing the instrument."

I was expecting that simply walking over the bridge would ring the pipes and you'd get an interesting melody depending on which planks you stepped.
