Ferrophone

Ferrophone creates sound by slowly rotating two metal discs with motors, each disc touching the opposite one with a nail. It can scare you with its metallic, squeaky and mean sounds, but it can also touch you with clear, long ringing and harmonious sounds. An alternative way of playing is to bow the discs. That sounds quite different than bowing a cymbal as the two Ferrophone discs touch each other with the nails.
