The ice melts, releasing the pebbles onto the sculpture. YOUTUBE
Anyone know more about this genre of what I call sonic sculpture?

And now, a question. She didn't think of this. As a child I saw a functionally similar sonic sculpture in San Francisco in the 1970's, maybe at the Japanese Tea Garden
at Golden Gate? It had no metal in it and it had a much more hollow bamboo sound, and it was much larger and more graceful in a larger more resonant room and it made a pretty good mess.
Can anyone can help me find more about this style?
The name of this type sculpture or art?
Can anyone point me to longer .mp3 recordings?
