In music, polyphony (from the Greek πολύς /po΄lis/ many and φωνή /fo΄ni/ voice) is a texture consisting of two or more independent melodic voices, as opposed to music with just one voice (monophony) or music with one dominant melodic voice accompanied by chords (homophonic).
Please feel free to contribute to Vortexhibition Polyphonica here if you are inspired  by objects on view. If you have questions about the exhibition, the Henry’s collections, or objects on view, submit them on the Question-phonica page.

  1. A couple of weeks ago we were paid a visit from a wonderful class of 5th & 6th graders that were part of the Robinson Center for Young Scholars Summer Challenge program. With guidance from their teacher, Jenny Dolan, they explored our exhibitions and were inspired to write some amazing poetry.

    Here is one poem inspired by Vortexhibition Polyphonica Opus III.

    Clocks ticking,
    Bottles hanging,
    Roads leading,
    To some place unknown.

    Pretty paintings of
    People and things.
    Amazing sculptures made of
    Velvet and strings.

    Skeletons laying on the ground.
    Fruit is sitting on a huge mound.
    Oreos stacked neatly one by one.
    Eating them would be so fun.

  2. We are a bunch of volunteers and starting a brand new scheme in our community.
    Your website provided us with helpful info to work on.
    You have done an impressive task and our whole group will probably be
    thankful to you.

  3. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website addresses a lot of the same topics as
    yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
