- Composed By, Performer, Liner Notes – Ule Troxler
The first version of the Sablophon (sable = sand, phon = voice) was built in1980 by Wolfgang Rehn. It was a mechanical instrument, which could produce sounds and tones up to 4.5 octaves using sand falling on strings. Unfortunately the first version of the instrument does not exist any longer. Remaining however are audio recordings from the 1980s.
Tracks 1 through 8 are composed and processed on a computer using the sounds of the Sablophon. Track 9 is the sound of the Sablophon without processing.
