Listen to the music of the Singing Stones

Singing Stones

The instrument is created with 100 river rocks suspended by music wire from a wing-shaped sound box and hanging in a steep arch. The strings (vibrating longitudinally) release their music as the performers dance and, with rosin-covered gloves, stroke, caress, and tug the strings.

Ela Lamblin and Leah Mann gathered resonant slate from the Cascade mountains, stones from the Pacific Ocean, and rocks from the Applegate River to create this breathtakingly beautiful combination of sculptural stone, delicate movement, and symphonic sound.
