Dave Powell: Guitar shaped Hurdy-Gurdy by William Molan
(after Pierre Louvet), violin bow, Zoom GFX-8 guitar effects, DigiTech RP100
guitar processor, assorted sounds, talking Christmas card.
After first hearing this, I kind of jokingly suggested the title "Fried
Rosin" to Dave, due to the nature of the music, not at all typical for a
hurdy-gurdy album, and that in sessions he also seemed to get through copious
amounts of rosin (that's the rose wood sap blocks used on strings that aids
resonation - if you know what I mean), and as if he'd fried the sound with
electronics too - a double meaning! An unusual and fascinating album of
vignettes and sound pictures.
First edition (quantity not specified) - released ?/?/2003.
