Quartertone Accordion in Just Intonation Music

Soundtrack Box No. 1 was made to produce music for a feature film.

It provided me with just as many limitations and possibilities, as I needed in order to be fully comfortable in the creative process. This video briefly demonstrates some of its capabilities. The soundtrack itself has of course more musical value.

I often have to convince my friends that the box has its own reverb and no additional effects are used. There’s just an extension spring inside the box and a little contact microphone attached to it.

Now I’ve decided to make a new box for every film I’m asked to compose for in the future! Soundtrack boxes are fun!

Introducing the amazing >Compact Disc<

In 1983, when the first compact disc players arrived on the Australian market, they ranged in price from $900-$1800. (This made them a very significant purchase, given that the Australian Bureau of Statistics says average weekly earnings were around $350/week at the time). The price didn’t hold back the rapid adoption of the technology.

But even then, as Sonia put it in her closing remarks, there was an even better technology on the horizon.

“The Compact Disc may well rule the roost – at least until someone perfects a method of putting Beethoven’s 9th on a silicon chip. Don’t laugh, I’m assured that that day, in fact, is not too far off…..”

Mechanische Vogelstimmenmaschine von 1890

Was sich wie echte Vogelstimmen elektronisch anhört, sind tatsächlich kleine Pfeifen mit einem Balg.

Very cute little vintage mechanical singing bird mechanism.Made in the 1890’s in Paris, probably by Bontems. The mechanism was in a rusted and seized state and has been restored. Surprisingly even the bellows are in good original condition.

Verlassene Pianos

Romain Diery fotografiert verlassene Orte. Da fielen ihm besonders auf: Klaviere.

Siehe auch Martin Grütters schönes Projekt, ein altes Klavier mit Samples zu konservieren und weiterzunutzen.
