Bikelophone
bikelophone.jpg

Originally constructed in June 1995 as a side instrument for The Lyle and Sparkleface Band, the bikelophone has evolved into a palette of sonic exploration.

The current configuration includes - bass strings, scrap wood and metal, metal bowls, telephone bells, a mechanical foot pedal and a touch sensitive tone generator. With magnetic pickups attached to amplify the sound, anything connected to the bike becomes amplified.

The bikelophone produces sounds ranging from tranquil bliss to cacophonic terror.
