The Skiddaw Stones features a Lithophone dating from 1840, composed of 61 tuned and shaped rocks, made from rare hornfels stone, found in Cumbria, England. Two different sets of mallets were used to laboriously capture large sets of velocity hits, then an extra articulation was recorded – the sound of the head of the wooden mallet being scraped across the stone surface – a surprisingly haunting and resonant sound.
