1. Giant Guiros:
The three poles are called Giant Guiros. Played by hands, sticks or whatever is available and suitable.
Groves on sides produce a rasp sound. The tongues on the back have a specific pitch.
The whole pole functions as a resonating chamber and therefor drum.

5. Guiro Bench:
The seat is attached with springs to its legs. By sitting on one end sound gadgets inside the seat roll to one side. Groves on the side make a rasp sound. Tongues in the seat surface can be played with your hands.
6. Thong Drums:
By hitting the open ends with hands or thongs the pipes produce a low echoing pitch.
7. Rain Wheel:
The drum is suspended by barring. Beads inside the drum produce a 'rain', or 'shaker' sound.
8. Gong Drums:
Sustained gong sounds, each drum it's distinctive pitch. Played with hands or fingers. Can also be used as seats.
9. Chimes Tower:
When moving the suspended clinger, centred in a circle of nine chimes, ringing gong-like sounds are produced.
10. Bell Harp:
Seven tuned, clear bell like sounds are produced by using the attached mallets.
11. Sonic Tree Trunk:
Five tubes per pole containing a marble that starts rolling when the tube is lifted, causing a chiming sound. Comes as a single, set of three or set of five trunks.
Engravings I use on all sculptures.
