What is the sound of balance? Equalibria is a new instrument for musical expression that uses vessels of water as input. Instead of producing songs and melodies, the piece uses the ratios of water levels to generate sonic dronescapes. Since water must be put into the instrument for it to play, the water must also be removed for it to stop. This cycle of in and out mimics our breathing and our relationship with water. The public is invited to scheduled performances and demo session where they can try creating sound with the instrument.
