Ohio is flat, so it seems, but there are holes in this earth

Stones are tumbling down off the cliff, where the river carves a deep valley.

they are marked with fine clays, from glacial till ground up

Samples are taken:

a durable, but heavy, one can be made out of bamboo bought from Watson's.  Better material is reeds from by the river (see Japanese Knotweed)

or Best, request a sack of cane from Mr. Sakakeeny, the bassoonist.  Cut a slit to mount a piezo and use the phantom preamp, or make a quarter inch cord. 


Daxophone, meaning voice of the badger.  A post-orchestral, pro-piezo method of bowing wood.  The geologist's tool, however, is reed against stone.  This is more like a "Dax-Tube", hence its inclusion in the unit on tubes.

To use the Dzreng, i.e. the implement of destruction:
Take it and hold it like a great pen, at a node near where it meets the stone.  The piezo transducer should be in the air, it should be airy, or aired.  The piezo is thus free to pick up any vibrations that may traverse the Dzreng.  The dzreng is thus begun to draw a circle (ensou) on the stone.  Hold it almost vertically so the circle of the tube intersects the face of the geology.  It can be brought to resonate based on the different clays in the specimen.  This can be entered into 8 bit digital delay for looping purposes.
