Rusting Souls

This is my current project and interactive sound piece the restoration and modification of an old Cimbalom, also known as a concert grand Hammered Dulcimer. It was from either from Hungary, Ukraine, or Russia. It was found at a local salvage yard. I am building a hand cranked system of 14 hammers that will play haunting repetitive music loops. It’s kind of like a giant music box. Most of the materials used in the modifications were also found at salvage yards as through out the bay area. It will premiere at Asterisk Gallery in San Francisco, CA for solo show I have titled “Transience” on Jan 17, 2013 and runs through Feb 28th 2013. I will be continue posting pics of my progress up though the opening date.
