This instrument is called a waterphone and it’s often used to create creepy sounds in movies. It is an inharmonic acoustic percussion instrument and consists of a stainless steel resonator with a cylindrical ‘neck’ and bronze rods of different lenghts and diameters around the rim of the bowl. The instrument was invented by Richard Waters in 1968 or 1969. Waterphones were used in movies like The Matrix (1999), ALIENS (1986), and others.
