Resonating Stone Instruments (Lithophones)













I built a collection of non-tempered resonating stone instruments with percussionist Mark McCoin in the early 1990's. We were inspired by the Balinese Gamelan orchestras who have a different tuning in each village. At the top is a series based on Slit or Tongue drums (including a kick drum), next is a vertical slate marimba, and then two instruments based on the Balinese Gender with bars of Basanite. Percussionist Jesse Manno and I still occasionally perform on these instruments as "The Lost Angel Stone Ensemble", seen here playing a rack of tuned hanging stone gongs.
