One day I heard a big metal screw falling on a marble floor. I was inspired by the sound and thought that hanging and banging metal screws in the air would sound interesting.

I used a plastic dish which I painted in my own way with oil colours.

As soon as it dried I opened holes on the dish and put through small strings of different length.

I used five screws and tied each one at the end of each string.

Then I took another big screw and used it as a stick to hit the dish.

My musical instrument sounds like different-tone bells ringing at the same time.
