Walter Wright – amplified drums, percussion

Open rehearsal at 114 Grand Street, last rehearsal of the year, back to the roots (sorta’).

saz

Baglama Saz
Commonly known as the baglama, this is mid-sized, and the most common saz, and supplies the melody to both traditional and modern Turkish music. Think of how western music would be if the violin and the guitar were the same instrument, and you get the idea. It commonly has a scale of 26″ – 36″, with 35.6″ typical of a long-neck in A tuning and 27.4″ typical for a short-neck in D tuning.

A professional saz is made to order, and the scale is set to whatever the musician requires, according to the intended tuning of the first (highest) course which is in turn matched to the performer’s vocal range. Often this means a shorter neck, but the music is still written as if the top string were tuned to A, and such a saz is therefore a transposing instrument.

Standard long-neck A tuning:
G g – d d – A a a

Common variations (also A tunings):
E e – d d – A a a
F# f # – d d – A a a

Short-neck D tunings:
c c’ – g g – d d’ d’
A a – g g – d d’ d’
B b – g g – d d’ d’

In my upgraded workspace. Xmas presents to left of the AVSynth include Raspberry Pi, USB keyboard & mouse, monitor. I hope to use the RPi for video playback, with speed and direction controls, and triggers and CV outs.

20161229_patchPatch

Audio only, the Swoop modules are cross-patched, each controls the other’s upper bound. In addition, they are touch-controlled using one Mikrophonie module, which controls the lower bounds. The two remaining Mikrophonie modules control the Fourses modules. upper bounds on the top oscillator and lower bounds on the bottom oscillator. The outputs of the second oscillators from the top go to the Denum module, which is controlled by the outputs of the Swoop modules. Audio outputs from the Swoops, Fourses and Denum modules are mixed externally using my Yamaha powered PA.

Three tracks, tracks 1 and 2 using (3) contact mics, (2) Swoops, (2) Fourses, and Denum. These two tracks positioned over track 3 amplified drums and percussion, mixed in Audacity.
