The Hive \ Ikbal Lubys & Tony Maryana (2017)

Indonesian artists, Ikbal Lubys and Tony Maryana produced a bespoke, sculptural musical instrument in response to the mouth of Peak Cavern. The Hive instrument was a larger-than-life resonator, with vibrating chimes for visitors to interact with. Resembling a suspended organic hive structure, the instrument was made from parts of Gamelan bars, a form of percussive Indonesian music using gongs and xylophone-type instruments.

Since 2017, it has travelled across the UK, and was presented in Indonesia in 2018 as part of The Other Festival as part of UK/ID.

The Hive by Ikbal Lubys & Tony Maryana in collaboration with Laurie Crombie. Commissioned and produced by Abandon Normal Devices. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England and British Council, Indonesia.
