Listen to this funky electromechanical lithophone

Excellent, I love rock music.


Nice molding.




Interesting experiment. The tones are really beautiful.

For me this would be a lot more effective musically if there were accompaniment, especially in the lower tones. There’s a heck of a lot of high frequencies there, and not much in lower registers. Or add some bigger stones?

A lot of reverberation too – too much. Maybe do out on the moors somewhere?

And why not have a musician play a keyboard controlling it with MIDI? It would be less mechanical sounding.

But these are just nitpicks. It’s a great idea and a great demo.



No more buttered scones for me, mater.
I’m off to play the lithophone.


Sounds like Peter Gabriel’s ending credits music from Last Temptation of Christ
