A sound sculpture is a hybrid, being both sculpture and musical instrument.
Each time I am not just making another percussive instrument or piece of sculpture but something which must be both. Although constructed from found objects, each sculpture is no longer merely an object but a new sort of structural ensemble which makes a variety of sounds. In the process found items lose their original identity and function.
Adaptations of these instruments can be made in stainless steel for art galleries, sculpture parks, play centres, private homes or gardens. Some samples are shown below on exhibition at Monnow Valley Arts Centre, Walterstone, Herefordshire.
