The concept of the project was implemented on the basis of the idea of a musical instrument xylophone. This is a percussive musical instrument with a certain sound height. It is a series of wooden bars of different sizes, tuned to certain notes. Sticks with ball-shaped tips or special hammers similar to small spoons are hit on the bars. When playing the xylophone, the material of the stick heads, which extract sound from the instrument, is very important. So, for example, sticks with rubber heads will make a quiet and soft sound. While sticks with plastic heads will give a sharp and very loud sound.
Additionally, the sculpture represents a symbol of the mining industry. A kinetic sculpture consisting of 100 copper hammers, accompanied by melody and sounds of hammers. One hundred copper pipes symbolize the historical effort of Kazakhmys Corporation since 1930. Musical accompaniment with the sounds of hammer beats symbolize harmony and uniqueness.
