This is one of my few instruments with electronic sound. Its physical machinery is for creating, shaping and harnessing the rhythms of falling rain drops. The concept and music came from J.Viewz. Project sponsorship came from Snapple. And it’s made complete by an amazing walk-on improvisation by Manu Delago. The instrument itself was an equal collaboration between Marina Litvinskaya and me.
Marina testing the Ripple Tank.
The Rainmaker and Prismatic Ripple Tank. So rain sensors or sound yet.
The first of Marina’s complications, which redirect the paths of the falling droplets and change their rhythms.
