The Bubbler can be considered as a sound sculpture. Imagined and hand crafted from scratch we decided we wanted to build something different and challenging. With the box made out of wood and hand painted it is the base and the outer layer of the instrument. With a hole in the front for better acoustics, it also lets through the inside mechanism that makes the sound.
Seven hollow metal tubes are inserted at different angels at the top of the box and are inside different glass bottles filled with different amounts of water so to have different harmonies. Allowing the musician to blow in the different tubes the bubbles create different sounds that can be played individually or as a chorus. Odd is still has some kind of warmth and familiarity making it interactive and fun to play with.
