For AIT: Rock Gongs




Beginning at 5:35 is a boulder (rock gong) which functioned as a drum more than 7,000 years ago. It's currently thought to be one of the roots of the Kush culture that later became the empire the Egyptians called the Nubians.

It's fucking music from rocks! Sorry. I need to just mull over that long, and hard.
