H2Orchestra was born when the sounds of liquid
flowing through valves inspired H2Orchestra member
S. Mann to invent the hydraulophone in the early 1980s.
H2Orchestra uses the patented hydraulophone technology.
in which the sound originates from turbulence and vortex-shedding
phenomena of water itself.
Hydraulophones are currently manufactured by
FUNtain, a Canadian company
with headquarters in Toronto, Ontario.
