The Alan Sondheim Mail Archive

June 6, 2013


What I've been doing -


New ESP-Disk vinyl and cd forthcoming!

We've been busy recording and mastering; the recording was made
at GodelStrings on Saturday, the mastering on laptops.

The lineup and instrumentation -

Azure Carter, lots of songs!
Chris Diasparra, baritone and tenor saxes!
Ed Schneider, alto sax, a bit of singing!
Alan Sondheim, long-necked saz, cura, cura cumbus, electric saz,
viola, violin, tro, oud, classical guitar, parlor guitar, dan
moi, kouxian, ukulele, sarangi, suroz, ghichek, pipa, sung lisu,
flute, chromatic harmonica, Cm harmonic harmonica!

(I wanted to see what the transitions would be like, from one
instrument or mode of playing to another; I also wanted to try
using an extreme number of instruments during the course of a
9-hour recording session.)

The sound recording is amazing - I really recommend this studio.

-- Also, working on a series of texts on IMMORTALITY for the
upcoming Subtle Technologies gathering/conference in Toronto
this weekend, yay!

-- And query - just found a Korean gayageum at a thrift store;
it's quite old and needs some work - if you know anything about
stringing it please get in touch! Thanks -
