Made completely from stainless steel, Tectonic Shift is a musical sculpture that marries the craft of the blacksmith with the art of a musician. John Little has designed and constructed a unique and beautiful instrument, one which embodies a range of sounds that stretches the imagination and inspires new and innovative creation. The sound can invoke everything from an industrial-strength, high-tech cello to the songs of a humpback whale.
