El instrumento que se desangra

Hybrid experimental musical instrument that combines the sound of dribbling percussion with an electromagnetic system manually assembled.

Through a water valve it can be determined the dripping frequency of the contained liquid into the container that relays on the metallic surface; this way regular rhythmic patterns can be generated. Materials used are found objects from different origin. Some parts belong to previous instruments.
