Watch Square Peg Round Hole Perform a Song on Resonant Boulders
Square Peg Round Hole visited Ringing Rocks Park in Upper Black Eddy, PA and wrote a new composition using only resonant boulders, hammers, and a few field recorders. Watch them perform the song at Boing Boing and look for the band's new album Juniper on March 25th.
Evan Chapman says, "Ringing Rocks Park is a 128 acre park located in Upper Black Eddy. Inside the park is an 8 acre field of boulders that, when struck with a hammer, sound resonant and reverberant; almost like a metal pipe. When we discovered Ringing Rocks Park, we knew that it would be an inspiring place for us to write and play music. As percussionists, we are always searching for unorthodox sound sources, and are often finding new instruments in unexpected places. We traveled to Ringing Rocks Park with filmmaker Kevin Eikenberg and documented the writing process of a song played solely on boulders."
