From Neil Young to Sonic Youth and on down, detuned guitars have long been a source of slurred-droney-goodness. But what happens when you apply concept to a larger stringed instrument? Andrew Wedman, who combines the inquisitiveness of an improvising musician with the technical know-how of a piano tuner, has decided to find out. The result is the bass piano — a standard piano tuned down a full octave to A220. Joe Strutt had a chat with Wedman to find out more about this concept. You can release the tension and hear the results for yourself at Wavelength 583 this Sunday at Creatures Creating.
Holiday Rambler is the spirit of Lazarus made flesh. He has been returned to rove the land and herald a change in the winds of humanity. His hand moves matter, his sound moves minds. The Hooded Fang and King Weather have both bore witness to the hallowed apparition in gentlemanly clothes. Wavelength too has been visited upon by the Holiday Rambler. With countenance darkened by a thousand league stare, he spoke thusly: "Unto you I grant a glimpse trough the Window of All. Ask but six questions, and the answers shall be given."
