Square Peg Round Hole Plays Ringing Rocks

Ringing Rocks Park is a 128 acre park located in Upper Black Eddy. Inside the park is an 8 acre field of boulders that, when struck with a hammer, sound resonant and reverberant; almost like a metal pipe. When The percussionists of Square Peg Round Hole discovered Ringing Rocks Park, they knew that it would be an inspiring place for them to write and play music. As percussionists, they’re always searching for unorthodox sound sources, and are often finding new instruments in unexpected places. The group traveled to Ringing Rocks Park with filmmaker Kevin Eikenberg and documented the writing process of a song played solely on boulders.
