Shimmering Beast – an installation with 60 Alpha cymbals



In the course of “Rock The Casbah” at the “Istituto Svizzero di Roma” Swiss drummer & sound artist Nicolas Field presented the sound installation “Shimmering Beast”. It consists of a 16 ½ by 20 foot large triangle, formed by 60 Paiste Alpha Brilliant cymbals.

The cymbals were set up horizontally to reflect diverse light sources. This massive and visually stunning collection of Alpha cymbals slightly touched each other producing a shimmering sound paired with an extremely low frequency that vibrated the podium in which the stands rested on.

Nicolas Field studied at the “Conservatoire de Musigue Populaire” in Geneva and also received a degree in Media and Arts at the “Haute Ecole d’Art et de Design” in Geneva. The “Istituto Svizzero di Roma” is a unique place that offers the possibility to develop work and research to young artists and scientists since more than 60 years.
