Overtone Ensemble CD launch at Inland 10th November

The last Overtone Ensemble Ensemble show for the year. We’ll be playing some new instruments (“doppler-rod” instruments and longer rod versions of the vibrissa). In fact, we’ll just be playing rods without any percussion so it will be quite a minimalist set. This church has great acoustics so it should be a good one! CD’s will be available on the night. An excellent lineup too..

Church of All Nations, 180 Palmerston Street, Carlton. 8pm $20/12

Vibrissa #3

I am currently at work on re-designing the Vibrissa instruments. Still at the R&D stage, but we are making some good progress so far. I’ve had invaluable assistance from industrial designer friend Denis Smitka. It’s been great having access to professional tools as well as Denis’ skills and insights.

This new design will be easier to assemble, allow different playing heights, rod sizes and easier interchangeability of rods and tuning sets.
