Offering a budget-friendly low-profile way to add a little musical fun to a vibrant walkway, public plaza, sensory path, cycleway, or play area, Stepping Stones will create a multi-sensory experience for pedestrians - they are surprising, they grab attention and they 'activate' public spaces.
Each of the six square Stepping Stone secretly hides a musical chord beneath it which is easily activated by a step, jump, push or wheel across its top. Stepping Stones use the same technology as our Floor Pianos but with each ‘note’ hiding an uplifting major or minor triad chord of three bells. Players can have fun discovering each bell by stepping on different spots – or jumping with both feet to play the chord. Each ‘bell’ - when struck - emits a pure tone with a long sustain and the sound intensifies the harder you jump!
Available as standard covered in a plain EPDM top, colored to match our rainbow scale. Stepping Stones can also be purchased on request without the EPDM to allow for other surfaces that match the surrounding area to cover and 'hide' the instrument - adding an element of surprise when activated!
N.B Stepping Stones are not suitable for installing with loose surfaces such as engineered wood fiber.
There are six Stepping Stones available in six chords - each with its own distinct sound.
