Cadenzas are scaled down outdoor musical instruments perfect for one player and comfortable enough for two.

Strong, weather-proof and durable, the notes are arranged as a traditional xylophone or glockenspiel with low to high notes going from left to right.

Notes are available in aluminium, hardwood or GRP, each of which gives its own distinct sound when played. There are no wires or strings as the notes are individually and securely attached to the resonators for maximum vibration with incredible tones and resonance. The resonators are available in a number of different colours.

The instrument is designed for ground installation, surface or wall mounted. Cadenza’s are tuned to the C-Major pentatonic scale covering two octaves.

The Cadenza has a lovely curved design and is perfect for exploring possibilities with melody, harmony, and rhythm.
