Salamandir on harmonic flute (didjeriflute), Ranjit on harmonic bass (tromba marina)
“The harmonic flute is a very simple instrument that makes very, very complex sounds. It was made from a piece of 1-inch PVC tubing, about 7 feet long, that I rescued from a construction site dumpster.” – Salamandir (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The tromba marina is a bowed instrument from the 15th to 17th centuries with a single very long string. It’s fingered below the bow, so you get harmonics that sound a lot like a trumpet – thus the name. My version is made from a 7 foot long piece of lumber – also rescued from a dumpster – and a cello string.
After ten years, I’m quitting the Instrument-a-Day project. I’m declaring this February to be COLLAB FEB, in which I will try to do as many very small sound/music collaborations as possible. Get in touch if you want to join!
