Indonesian artists, Ikbal Simamora Lubys and Tony Maryana have produced a bespoke, sculptural musical instrument in response to the mouth of Peak Cavern. The Hive instrument is a larger-than-life resonator, with vibrating chimes for visitors to interact with. Resembling a suspended organic hive structure, the instrument will be made from parts of Gamelan bars, a form of percussive Indonesian music using gongs and xylophone-type instruments.
The Hive by Ikbal Lubys & Tony Maryana in collaboration with Laurie Crombie. Commissioned and produced by Abandon Normal Devices. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England and British Council, Indonesia.
