Tectonic Shift – John Little

2007 Finalist

Creator: John Little

Nominator: Susan MacAlpine Foshay

Seconders: Chris Tyler, Peter Wiegold

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.
