As the water in the air condenses onto the condenser, it drops onto the acrylic sheet underneath, which then casts an image of the water drops onto the cymbal on the floor. When the water on the acrylic sheet accumulates to a point, it drips onto the cymbal, making a sound. A contact microphone is attached to the bottom of the cymbal and is connected to a delay pedal, then a pair of speakers. As the water drips onto the cymbal, the sound is amplified and echoes for a period of time.
