Louis Siu
Timbre Vessels
Parts of an old xylophone, vibraphone, steel, wood, recycled materials

Wind chimes are musical instruments that turn the kinetic force of nature into pleasant sounds. Timbre Vessels features a series of suspended tubes, deconstructed from an old xylophone and a vibraphone, providing an ever-changing blend of sounds, which draw attention to the vital energy of nature. The mesmerising sound sculpture evokes the movement and flow of ships at sea.

The artist would like to specially acknowledge Phoebe Hui for her contribution at the development stage.
