The space bass

”The Sonic Steel Instruments, original designs by Constance Demby, have been recorded by Lucas SkyWalker Studios for use in their filmscores, and filmed by Discovery Channel in Gaudi’s ”Parc Guell” in Barcelona for their specials.
The Sonic Steel Space Bass is a 10 ft sheet of mirror finish stainless steel with 5 octaves of steel and brass rods. The rods can be bowed, struck percussively, and the metal sheet can be rubbed to create various effects. Several tones can be created by bowing a single rod, resulting in a multi-tiered overtone series.
A sound scientist determined that the sound waves on the lowest notes of the instrument are approximately thirty feet long.”
