  • The Hang

    I am renting a Hang for a week, here is first impro with it, live on tape / HD, some FX. The Hang is an instrument invented by some swiss guys, they stopped building it some years ago. so they're really hard to get hold of (and bloody expensive too). It's a percussion instrument, reminding of a steel drum but sounding much more mellow and warm, it has 8 zones with pentatonic pitches and a bass note/route note in the center of the instrument, you can see how it looks in the image I posted in the soundcloud track. You can play it with hand, mallets, sticks, rub it with various things and whatnot:

    Interesting! Love how you are a sonic seeker of all kinds of worldly instruments.

    Keep it up.

      Thank's man, the interaction between acoustics and electronics is what fascinates me most, really, it's been like that most of my life and it's getting worse

        Another Hang impro played with mallets during the night after multisampling it for hours:

          Here are some Hang loops in 7 (played live, then layered 2 of the long extracted loops), accompanied by a Serum pad and a Tremor kick sequence:
