Slowly scratch the stone
This visual, sonourous and interactive artwork is inspired by the lithophone : one of the oldest musical instruments of the humanity.
One version of this work is show in Vietnam inside the Dak Nong Cultural Museum. Some stones were used by the k'hos (first ethnic groups of the highlands) for make musical instruments. Some stones found close to the river were attached to liana and put in the water. The force of the water make the stones resonate and create powerful sounds, capable of repelling animals and protecting their crops. These stones were then used as lithophone to accompany their religious dances and rites.
