Tuned Session

Luke Damrosch, 21-string guzheng
Azure Carter, ukulele
Alan Sondheim, Alpine zither, oud, guqin, viola, tro sor,
piccolo, alto clarinet, shakuhachi

Luke's been working with alternative guzheng tunings,
me, I just tune normal but low, except for the Alpine
zither, that has a lot of fifths and octaves all the
way up and down, then my shakuhachi playing is one
hundred per cent non-traditional so the scale is all
over the place, I love the calmness and intensity
we achieved here, and sure as can be we'll play this
live somewhere in Providence, Rhode Island, in the
remnants of the 'united' states of America. Enjoy.
