Day two.

The 2nd day was filled with very nice takes. Adrino adjusted his double bass to my recorded sounds and tuned the strings from EADG lower to EG#CG. He also played with different tools to verify the sound of his double bass. After the session Adriano told me about his festival plans for the next week. So we went to a grafic store to print flyers for it. Meanwhile Silvia was working on her painting preparations.

Day one.

Sardinia finally! I know Adriano Orrù since two years now and yesterday we meet personally. Today I have visited his house and we started with initial recording sessions for a really nice project for the next year. His great wife Silvia joined us during the session and played piano and toy piano. By the way the dog is called »Pippo« and he is my hero of the day :-)

Der Eierschneider

Auf der Suche nach neuen Klängen bin ich durch meine Mitarbeiterin des Miyuko Cafés auf ihren Eierschneider aufmerksam geworden. Sie erzählte mir, dass sie ihn zu Weihnachten bekam und er mache wunderbare Sounds. Vor Kurzem brachte sie ihn ins Café mit und ich machte erste Aufnahmen zusammen mit meinem eigenem, halb defekten Eierschneider. Ein schöner verstörender «Harfensound». Danke an Danique :-)

Recording a table…

While I was in Kyoto I discovered a kind of designer object: a table made of metal which was kept together by wires. I asked the owner for permission to capture the sound by pulling the wires. The outcome was a sound which reminded my of bells. I am hoping to use this recorded session one day…
