Tres faciunt collegium
Who owns the colours? Everyone.
The marimba, the kalimba, are by their very nature self-reflexive insturments; small, mobile, they were played by shepherds, by savannah children, and it was only later that these instruments found their way into musical groups and dance music. The metallophones I have made are, on the contrary, stationary, distributed in space to create the impression of multivoicing. It takes three people. Tres faciunt collegium.
Thank you Lithuania, greetings from the Lower Rhine area
