The Bol (Bowl) is a fantastic musical instrument invented by Jean-Fran├žois Laporte that generates strange and menacing sounds.

The Hydre (Hydra) is a monstrous beast that would grow two heads for each one that was cut off. I suppose one could say I simply tried to create a graft using these two curiosities: the large majority of the sounds used to compose this piece are taken from the instrument itself.
