Blue Triangle's story
Blue Triangle is a Spring percussion instrument. It is our very first self-built acoustic instrument and it got us hooked on instrument building! This is the first instrument in our Spring instrument group.
Sonically Blue Triangle represents the idea of a big sound in a small body. Despite its angular shape, when plucked with a finger, its sound can be round and at times a bit like a gong or church bell.
The Spring instrument group
As funny as it may sound, the idea for Spring instruments occurred on a sleepless night when restlessly laying on an old and occasionally ringing spring mattress.
Springs are actually used in so many objects that people use daily (pens, table lamps, watches, cars, you name it!), that we started collecting springs and playing around with their sonic qualities. A whole new world of long metallic resonances emerged!
