There have been many very cool new instruments that have passed in the forums lately. Here is a new take on a very old instrument, the berimbau from Brazil:
I'd actaully like to try and make one of these, they cannot be bought, if anyone can ID the stompbox he used or something similar please post back up...
Here is some contemporary berimbau playing:
Recreating instruments digitally is
A feat in it self, somethign u can't help
Expesially if its instruments
With a lot of expression, like
A guitar or violin...
I can't w8 to c wat happends in the next few years...
Got my curiosity up here - unfortunately I'm getting error messages on youtube and can't see either of these.
I've got some kalimbas (finger pianos) that I'd like to put some electric guitar pickups on to replicate the sounds coming out of Congo these days. Look up Congotronix on Youtube for an idea of what this sounds like.
Bunk! I was really hoping for your thoughts on this nomad, keep trying, wtf?
Argg - it's Firefox. Another pointless annoying thing to resolve.
The electric berimbau: I want one! Seriously. Can you imagine playing the rhythm section of a set with one of these? It's on the same level as the electrified kalimba.
He's definitely got effects built into his instrument. I'm hearing a phaser and some sort of digital delay.
To me, it reinforces how "psychedelic" those "primitive" instruments can really sound. Just add a little modern tech, and voila. Check out my track "Cantus Ranocchio" to hear bamboo Jew's harps run through an antique Boss DD-2 digital delay. (And very cool to see the trance barimbau set using Jew's harps, too!)
Thanks for sharing this one, dungbeatl!
Sorry for the double post, but I've got to put this up.
Here's what's happening with the kalimba after using recycled magnetic pickups manufactured in Mexico or China.
