the instruments played in "Equinox"

Listen to an excerpt of "Equinox"

This piece uses an instrument that's a combination drum and horn, called a "globutubular horn with goatskin resonator," or more simply a "drum horn." The instrument's goatskin membrane can be played as a drum, and it can also be blown in a didjeridu-like style. The combination of a tubular section and a globular chamber provide its unique tone and its low pitch for such a small size. This piece showcases both the drum and horn sounds.
