    Two very different kinds of crazy "on the edge" stuff in successive posts. Great things happening out there.

    Electro-magnetic resonance

    10 specially tuned steel bell plates. Played not by striking, but without touching, using electro-magnets. Sounds very eerie, though the video sound quality is poor - headphones help!

    Concept by composer Ed Carter. Plates by me. Electronics by Dave Cranmer. Structure and lighting design by Nikki Locke.

    This has been a memorial installation in a church in the North East of England. The work commemorates the 1962 George Elmy lifeboat disaster. Tonight, it has been out on the quay-side, with a brass band, braving the elements. Sadly I wasn't able to go to the other corner of the country to catch it - I've been busy with other things - see the next post...

    Getting Spizzy with it (again)

    I've started again on another Spizz tribute cymbal. Hoping I don't crack this one! It has gone better than the earlier one so far...




    It has got to rest for a few days, then I'll check the sound and maybe make some minor tweaks. Then the final lathing passes and some secret-sauce patina. Ready in time for PASIC!!

    Cheers,
    Matt.

    Octogong

    Here's a recent gong commission that you might like.

    The octopus motif is hammered in relief and patinated in a combination of processes. It is an artistic interpretation of this image:




    Cheers,

    I saw the clip on Facebook today.
    Fantastic!
    Showed it to my wife (she is a very fine musician) and the reaction was: "Wow, we need to have something like that in home."
    I'll give you a call very soon Mr.Nolan.
    Good Job!

    It's not me. Something up with the cymbalholic server. I fixed it once and then it broke again on a page reload. Fixed it again, seems stable this time. We'll see...
