Giant gramophone plays the earth

Craft & Design Music

The Alunda Church Choir put their backs into this performance titled “Harvest” using the land-amplifying terrafon instrument. The piece, created by Olle Cornéer and Martin Lübcke, is apparently part of an ongoing series (requiring some very sturdy and determined participants). Read more over at Create Digital Music.

    Since when does discordant sound with no rhythm count as music? Why not just pull with horses or cattle? Theres no music here, just a funny looking, noisy, plowshare.

      I read it as a representation of the relationship between people and the earth. The gramophone serving as tool for the land to communicate with.

      It’s interesting and I would’ve loved finding this video in a gallery space.
