See audio visual documentation of two different performances of this instrument here.

This instrument and sculpture is based on the structure of coral, a porous body for multiple players. In a shared air chamber, the sounds of breath and liquid clash, collide and/or accumulate. This improvisation is an attempt to sonically shift the object from animal to plant to mineral in collective breathing waves, its inner chamber amplified into the space, with tectonic bass, beats and static tubular feedback.
