Paige Long is one of the few people able to play the three largest flutes *in the world*. With 22 feet of tubing, that's some serious lung power. Blow them away, Paige.

Making difficult times feel good.

Feel like counting some odd time grooving? Check this very cool groove in 33/8 by master Simon Philips. This is from his dvd titled "Complete" which features a lot of great drumming. Can you play along with this one?

Finally getting around to a solo recording. Hope to finish by spring. I have 6 or 7 composed movements and I am trying different ways of improvising to see what might compliment what I have.

I'm really excited to try one of the new Acoustic Image Upshot speaker cabinets. I got to meet Rick Jones and see the prototype earlier this year and couldn't believe how light it was... but the finished product has just been launched and it's is even smaller & only 11.5lb!

Classical and Jazz musicians show different brain responses to unexpected events, study finds

I am not sure if this is a correlation of style or a correlation of improvisation training. It would be nice to also see a group of classically trained improvisers and untrained or very early on the improvisation learning curve jazz musicians.

Scientists at Wesleyan University have used electroencephalography to uncover differences in how the brains of Classical and Jazz musicians react to an une ...

Mesmerizing Instruments and Sounds

Mesmerizing Instruments and Sounds

Experience the profound resonance of the Bazantar! A one of a kind instrument (there is only one in the world for now)developed by musician Marc Deutsch.Basically it's a five-string acoustic bass, fitted with twenty-nine additional sympathetic strings and four drone strings.The instrument possesses a melodic range of over five octaves, and its sympathetic range spans four octaves.The inventor intends this to create an interplay between melodic, sympathetic, and drone strings to produce a more resonant sound than a conventional upright bass.

more info:
In the late 1980s, Mark Deutsch began exploring North Indian classical music. The subtlety of this style, combined with his pursuits on the sitar, inspired him to delve deeper into the study of music. He started exploring the mathematics of sound, particularly music's underlying frequency structure. This search revealed nonlinear mathematical patterns that exist in sound and are found universally in the natural world, including the overtone series, fractals, the golden mean, seashells, and the Fibonacci series.

In 1993, Mark began work on the first prototype of the Bazantar, an acoustic bass with additional sympathetic and drone strings. His intent was to create an instrument that would take advantage of these nonlinear mathematical patterns and make them more consciously audible. The difficulty lay in engineering a design that would be able to withstand the tension of the additional strings. He devised the unique solution of constructing a separate housing that would contain both the sympathetic strings and their resultant tension, which would then be mounted onto the instrument. After much experimentation, a finalized version was completed in October of 1997.
In the finalized version, the drone strings are positioned outside the Bazantar's lowest meelody string on a bass bridge, which has been modified to support this configuration. The sympathetic strings are held in a modular graphite housing that is positioned between the feet of the main bridge and mounted at the bottom of the tailpiece and at the base of the neck, underneath the fingerboard. The torque these strings create is contained within this housing. Because none of this torque is transferred to the instrument's body, the stress to its structure is greatly decreased, allowing for increased flexibility throughout the entire design. The Bazantar's engineering strategy enables it to maintain more strings at higher tensions than conventional approaches dictate. This distinguishes its tonal character and contributes to its powerful and complex sound.

How fitting that my first video since being back in the US was filmed in the very studio where my YouTube journey began, Solar Way Studios! Full video here: https://youtu.be/SLsAn3wDonw
I can't tell you how happy I am to be back doing what I love and with such incredible people. Hyebin, you sounded just stunning and you were so much fun to work with! Joey, thank you for the amazing work you always produce, and for your marvelous wife Ronnie, who shot and staged the video so beautifully.
And of course, thanks to Nina, Jason, Aaron, emotional support pupper Zou Zou, and everyone who tuned into the livestream! What an incredibly special homecoming project. I'm so very lucky

From our friends at Luis and Clark carbon fiber instruments:

Summer music festivals and camps can bring about some of the best experiences for musicians both young and old. However, the trials and tribulations brought on by the heat and humidity of summertime can be almost as challenging as the music itself!

Made by hand with utmost care, Luis and Clark instruments not only stand up to the weather, they stand up to their great Italian wooden counterparts. And they would love to go to camp! Learn more: http://bit.ly/2sLMh7k

I'm excited to announce a new line of Bass bows designed for the advancing student or gigging professional. My Nicholas Parker line is completely made in my shop; no major parts are outsourced. They feature high quality pernambuco sticks and silver/ebony frogs. They were also designed to be travel friendly; the tips are metal, not ivory, and there is no shell used in the frogs or buttons. They are fine players with nice wide hair ribbons. Available now in 139-150 gram weights at an introductory price of $2,500.
