The waterphone was invented in 1967 by Richard Waters. It mixes the principles of the Tibetan water drum with those of a African lamellophone, as well as those of a nail violin of the 18th century. Sounds of a divine beauty a created by it, but it can also buzz, saw and mill. Because of these contradicting this instrument was able to find its way into New Music, as well as film and pop music.
However, it usually is humble and likes to add to the background of whatever music it is part of. In regards to what is presented by the "Waterphone Duo" you will finds this instruments place shifted to the foreground! Two players play two waterphones and create one pure waterphone experience.
