IDIOPHONE refers to instruments that produce their sound by the vibration of all the material they are made of, without the use of strings, membranes or air in pipes.

This proposal combines an idea of artisanship of movement with the manipulation of objects, in the construction of a sound installation in a public space. This installation is built together with the audience, who observe this dialogue between man and material (iron).

IDIOPHONE is a performance piece intended to be performed on the move, strolling around in collaboration with thirty members of the public. The group plays while carrying out various actions, and so finally constructs an artistic sound installation. The thirty tubes are hung on thirty ropes and counter-weighted so as to create a landscape of hanging metal that the audience can play and move around.
