The Guqin Water Piano is permanently cited in Shanghai Baoshan International Folk Arts Exposition. This Water Piano explores the tuning and origins of the Guqin one of the earliest Chinese instruments. Much of the early music written for the instrument was associated with interpretations of nature and landscape. The Water Piano uses water flicked onto highly amplified bronze rods tuned to a pentatonic scale. The speed and intensity is affected by the movement of the audience and the sound is a poetic audio metaphor for the flowing water of a mountain stream. This is a development of Appletons Water Piano series.
