Marti Forks

MARTÍ FORKS

The Catalan builder and theoretician Martí Ruiz made and tuned this set of of aluminum tuning forks. Following his suggestion, I have mounted them so that the forks spin as they sound; and in addition the entire top of the mounting structure rotates, allowing the forks to rotate as they whirl like planets around a sun. The Doppler and phasing effects that result are particularly effective given the very long sustain of the forks.
