What sound do you hear when thousand pieces of messing (a type of metal) fall down at high speed? That question was the starting point for Dutch sound artist Kunrad in working on Between Copper And Zinc (messing is made of copper and zinc). The air friction of the hollow tubes of messing causes a thin, singing sound. Several containers suspended from the ceiling are programmed to drop the tubes into heaps of sand, metres below. Different sizes of tubes create different pitches (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). That way, musical patterns arise and turn into a staggering composition.
