Spiral rainbow
Euklang (Oyklung) Metallophone

Musical Instruments by Thomas Wiegandt

Inspired by Balinese Gamelan music and the over-abundance of materials in wasteful western countries. The Junk Metallophones have been worked into polyphonic metallophone sets tuned to Gamelan scales or good sounding random scales, thus expanding the musical possibilities of expression. They are inexpensive player-friendly instruments, i.e. everyone with an open, social and respectful approach can play them. The sounds are pleasant and have a healing quality.
