David Byrne staged the event at the Battery Maritime building in New York
Former Talking Heads singer David Byrne is to turn a London gig venue into a "musical instrument" in the summer.
The star will allow fans to play an old keyboard that activates flute pipes and electric motors dotted around The Roundhouse in Camden.
"That venue is just perfect, they'll just strip everything out and open the windows along the top," he said.
"It's beautiful when the lights stream in, it's the perfect place." He has already staged the event in New York.
The project will also see further devices attached to metal beams, pillars and heating pipes around the building.
Playing The Building will be at The Roundhouse in Camden from 8-31 August.
Byrne has also released a live EP featuring songs from his recent tour, with all proceeds going to Amnesty International.
The Everything That Happens Will Happen On This Tour release includes songs from his most recent album with Brian Eno, including One Fine Day, My Big Nurse, I Feel My Stuff and the single Strange Overtones.
