Gambus!

Item 791 in:

Pierre d'Herouville's

http://inthegapbetween.free.fr/pierre/GAMBUS_PROJECT/06_PORTFOLIO_part6.pdf

There is so much information in the entire Gambus
Project! - Do check this out. I've used the
instrument a lot recently - it sounds amazing.

* / qinqin

http://www.alansondheim.org/fishcove04.jpg
http://www.alansondheim.org/qinqinsong.mp3

The qinqin is a Chinese instrument based on a scale
of seven 'equidistant' notes (compared to our usual
scale of twelve) to the octave. This opens up a lot
of opportunities; you can hear the scales of Chinese
opera here. It has very high frets and is a bit
difficult to play, but here it is and I'm doing
something related to opera, to pipa music, to dance
and breath, upon it -

but I feel increasingly that I'm working at a dead-end)
