I have the prototypes for my turbulence flutes made. They are still leather hard and im finishing the last of the tooling of the surface. So far I have six made and im hoping to make around 9 of them. In the video you can hear the bass. Im using syringes to allow them to change pitch.

Sunday experiments on the basement stage. Here I looped oud and then played duduk over it for some evening microtonal madness. It was refreshing to get out of the rigid tuning standards that pervades most the music we hear everyday. The body is organically fluid and needs to escape the equally tempered ratios of pitches built off of A = 440 hertz.
Oud has a wonderful quality of naturally inspiring the explorations of someone accustomed to frets on a guitar.
And the dulcet voice of the duduk leads one to go beyond the conventions of scale and into a realm of pure musical expression.
Playing them together I had to disregard my usual approach to scalar melodies and just let the music float out of me. I used to believe that playing two microtonal instruments would result in a sound like sands shifting, without a solid foundation. Fortunately I’ve come to learn that the shifting sands are what allows for a deeper connection to the essence of musical expression.

Working diligently on finishing touches for the 2nd Last Sacrament album. There's also a video documentary on the album and our history with microtonal guitars on the way...Ten years ago we started this project and now its finally coming to fruition. #floridadeathmetal #technicaldeathmetal #floridametal #microtonalguitar #microtonal #fldm #orlandomusic #deathmetal #lastsacrament

Where my headspace is sitting... The king of gizzards before @kinggizzard.

Back in London, and after waiting for some time and wondering whether a second batch would be made, here it is. Microtonality goes mainstream! - how bizarre that something originally so niche can now simply be bought off the shelf! The new cornily named ‘Marrakesh’ model from #revelationguitars comes from the factory loaded with a selection of quarter-tone frets, and lots of space to insert more of your own later ;)...sort of a Jazzmaster body with great pickups and an amazing price - imagine if my 16-year old self found this, I would have ended up, well sort of doing what I’m doing now I guess :/ why is it not my birthday soon goddamit?! #serendipity #guitar #microtonal #quartertone #mauritania #music #sound #morocco #turkey #guitarra #canihaveit

Have you ever been the offering? Part 2 first, part 1 second. #fretless #fretlessacoustic #microtonal #imaginarycountryblues #fingerstyle #dronemusic more guitar, uke, and banjo tunes under #addsuptouke more fretless under #addsuptofretless

Detta är ett av de mest kärleksfulla ögonblick jag vet. När musikerna är samlade, värmer upp, tar i från inre fysiska och psykologiska platser man annars tystar ned, och bokstavligen lägger hela sin tyngd i sina medmusikers armar. Med ett sådant ömsesidigt förtroende kan konserten inte bli annat än stark. Från vår plats på scenen såg vi tårblänkta lyssnarögon under gammelmorfars koraler, och från vår plats i vapenhuset under postludiet såg vi dansande, lyckliga konsertbesökare som tackande såg oss var och en i ögonen. TACK återigen, publiken i Bräkne-Hoby! #koraleriet #traditionalmusic #timbre #microtonal #embodiment #kvinnokraft #musicianlife

Preparing for the new commission by Helge Sten and Ståle Storløkken is not all singing. /

#nowspinning this phenomenal work from my favorite classical composer ... though that is a ‘loose’ term at best. 😊
