Beautiful Beryllium Copper Sonambient by Val Bertoia
Val Berotia worked with his father Harry in the development of what they termed Sonambient; sounding metallic sculpture. Val has continued the work since Harry´s passing in 1978, maintaining the spirit of the original designs. This work features several hundred slender beryllium copper rods, mounted to a bronze base. Beryllium is most prized for its incredible sonic qualities, creating a sweet resonating tone. The 3 alternating rows provide great kinetic excitement when played, a light breeze providing enough power to create beautiful tones.
