Resonant Bodies instrument - a hollow ancient Ash trunk

Resonant Bodies invites a kinaesthetic experience for the whole body. A vibrational dialogue within the body of a tree.


The ancient Ash tree trunk is strung with 21 piano strings, tuned to tones of C. The instument is engaged with by playing the strings and laying inside the open trunk. The sensation of resonance throughout the body and tree may be experienced as deeply relaxing, an of accord of inner and outer landscapes.



Resonant bodies was developed with in response to movement and sound explorations together with Sindri Runudde and Teresia Lindberg, with technical assistance of Patrick Dallard and Tor Söderin.
