There is music playing again. The prognosis below was wrong. The problem lay in the drip pipes which had become totally clogged with clay and chalk particles. A bit of first aid has got water dripping again and it’s now a question of discovering how to filter out the sediment and whether the new holes in the pipes are big enough to pass them through whole . . . or whether they’ll clog up themselves. For now though all is well.

In times of drought – or plumbing problems – it is still possible to hear music, you just have to bring your own water.

If you look carefully through the slits in the cover in some places you can see a wire mesh. Below the mesh are trays of gravel that break up the flow and cause drips to form in an unpredictable manner.

If you sprinkle water from a bottle onto these areas you’ll hear an initial flurry of sound followed by a period of more measured and melodic music.

new top

Friday, March 23rd, 2007


The original flints have now been replaced by a corten steel top. Besides affording better protection, it is now possible to catch a glimpse, through the slits, of the chamber and instruments below the ground.

the drains don’t work

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006


The water in the hole continued rising to the point where all the instruments became submerged, the music being reduced to its minimal state, water dripping into water, a giant suikinkutsu. Now pumped out, they are all playing again.

The water in the hole is rising. What once looked like a futuristic city of tuned percussion now lies pretty much completely submerged. The consequence is that the music is now largely made up of watery sounds, accompanied by the chiming of the few instruments that still hang above the surface.

It sounds lovely but if you’re planning to visit don’t expect the full ensemble for the time being. It’s quiet, minimal and aquasonic.

There are several possibilities for the fact that the drain doesn’t work. The most likely is that the chalk under the floor of the hole takes its time to soak up the overflow and it’s still coping with the deluge that poured in during the storms a couple of weeks ago. This adds an unexpected and not unwelcome new dimesion to the ebb and flow of the music.

Now complete, the hole lies under a bed of flint, gathered from the surrounding hillside.

Inside the hole hang instruments from vertical bars, while the horn sprouts two flexi hose roots, ending in cones, a mirror of the horn, to amplify the music of percussion and water.
