The Last Resort was conceived as site-specific installation for Kaldor Public Art Projects in an outdoor pavilion for a location overlooking the Sydney harbor. The open structure houses 38 especially constructed snare drums, suspended from the ceiling in an up-side down position.
The ensemble of drums is a self-playing sculpture animted by the Clarinet concerto in A major, K. 622, composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1791, shortly before his death, in a recording that Anri Sala rearranged according to specific conditions.
