Sculpture Sonores is the name given to the Baschet Brothers vast collection of visually striking instruments crafted out of steel and aluminum and amplified by large curved conical sheets of metal. Some small, some over twenty feet high and incorporating glass rods, metal cones, wires, plastic inflatable resonators, and many other devices, these fascinating structures are not only aesthetically entrancing, but produce an incredible range of sounds and varied sonic textures.
These cones seem rather similar to the one I made for the performance in the garage space last at the end of first term. If you would like to download an album of theirs I recommend you check out Continuo's web blog here...enjoy.
