These works have come about through explorations in the resonance, tuning and vibrational energy of aluminium vibraphone bars, as well as exploiting the resonant frequencies of various common vessels such as plastic containers, tin cans, and glass jars. In a work made with Andreas Siagain in 2014, metal bars were specifically selected to match the resonant frequencies of individual sea shells.
