Tafeltonen by Wilco Spruijt


Table tones is a table and a musical instrument in one. Put a glass down, tap a spoon, or drum with your fingers: each spot on the table will give off a different tone. In order to create his table, Wilco Spruijt has analysed the ‘tongue drum’, one of the earliest instruments of communication created by man. He has experimented with different types of wood and the relationships between tongue, sound box, and thickness of the wood. table tones is a collage of sound boxes that will encourage people to join in the music making.
