Standing at 2,073 feet, the world’s highest symphony will reside in the second tallest tower, the Shanghai Tower. Simon Franglen, Grammy-winning producer and composer, has been commissioned to create the art space to fill the air with music, serenading the visitors who come to see skyline views of the city. "I have been at the top of many of the big buildings in the world, and this is something different," Franglen told CNN. "(It is truly) like something from another world." Four orchestras made up of 240 players, 60 drums, and 55 bells will play through 260 surround sound speakers throughout the venue. The symphony will produce songs influenced by city life in Shanghai–from birds singing in the park to car horns to the sounds of the river–ending with sounds inspired by the sunset.
