This paper is about the creation of a physical model of the traditional Korean stone chime instrument known as a "Pyeongyeong" using Ircam's Modalys software. This research focuses on creating a physical model that can be used in musical ways. In order to build the physical model, the instrument itself must be researched so its physical details can be used as a fondation for the construction of the model. The goal is to create a virtual instrument that can be used for creative purposes in the contexte of the contemporary/electronic music, in addition to being able to nbe used for compositions using traditional instrument, recording sessions and sound design for film scoring. The development of this model provides a good opportunity to allow the pyeongyeong - an instrument that is not easy to transport due to its physical size and weight - to be used in a wider international musical contexte.
