Harmonic, metallic, 'eastern' in flavor? Made by processing slowed recordings of spanners being dropped onto a concrete floor.

    brilliant. Such a good idea

    I think if you damp the resonance a little and use symmetric objects the result will be very like a tibetan singing bowl.

    I think that is what I mean. It is the reason that musical instruments are symmetric. The sound here isn't just a single tone and its harmonics, but the original tone and the harmonics are distorted because when the sonic vibration gets to the parts of the spanner that aren't symmetric, it alters. And that is a fine outcome in its own right. But I would also like to hear the alternative. Thanks for being willing to do that. Hmmm, I wonder what something with lots of weird asymmetric projections would sound like? A mishmash of noise? Lots of territory to explore.

    By distorted you mean atonal? I will bash up some other more symmetrical metallic objects later :)

    Exciting stuff - droning spanners - if only we heard them like this all the time!
