Sounds like microtonal, free-improvised…

Tomoko Sauvage improvises on waterbowls, a self-developed percussion instrument made of Chinese porcelain bowls filled with water, inspired by an instrument of carnatic music (South India), Jalatarangam. The serene sound and melodies are live-sampled and slightly processed by Gilles Aubry to create new layers of sound mixed with the original ones. This polyphonic interplay between primitive sound of water vibration and its time-lagged samples generates illusory vertigo.
