The spectacular sculptures of Matt McConnell of McConnell Studios will clash and clamor in people's heads for good reason. They are made out of a particular brass percussion instrument that is known for such sounds. Repeating cymbals in spiraling patterns, Matt McConnell takes them out of context of the music industry and brings them seamlessly into the art scene.

Pushing the boundaries when it comes to such installations, Matt McConnell's latest cymbal sculpture is titled Rhythm. Displayed at The Omni Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee, which is adjacent to the Nashville Music City Center and The Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, it is made up of 166 Sabian AAX cymbals. Although people might be tempted to play Matt McConnell's sculpture, caution should be exercised. Stats for Spectacular Cymbal Sculptures Trending: Older & Mild
