The Ruskin Rocks project involved the construction of a one-of-a-kind stone instrument (classified as a lithophone), demonstrated here by world-renowned percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie.

The project saw collaboration between a broad array of academics and professionals, including musicians, geologists and computer scientists, culminating in a unique project of both cultural and educational significance. 

The instrument was constructed of four different types of stone, each lending a distinct character to the sound. It is now installed in Brantwood House in Cumbria, UK.
