Metal sheet instrument.


Well-known member
I saw in a movie a couple of years ago, I think it was a French movie, there was a band playing at a cafe with an accordion and another musician playing a shiny sheet of metal, bending it to produce very strange sounds like:

Wooouuuuuu wowowow


The metallic sheet, with a high polished finish was in a vertical position, but I can't remember the exact dimension.. ti was producing some kind of background sound for the rest of the band.

As funny as it may sound, it was a fascinating instrument and the sounds were quite sophisticated, I am looking for the name of it.

Any ideas?

Don't know about that specifically, but it's akin to playing a saw either by tapping or using a violin-type bow.
