··· WIND WAND & OUD TAKSIM ···
[instructions for download below]
At the end of 2008, we enjoyed the first 35th Parallel session in Mac's newly completed recording studio. This got us quite excited for the new year, looking forward to recording our third album and settling into the band's new "sonic home".
The recent session produced a beautiful little vignette, featuring a curious instrument known as a wind wand. Essentially a wooden stick with a large rubber band stretched over it, the instrument is twirled around and around to produce a distinct droining sound.
Gabe twirled the Wind Wand. Mac played a lovely oud taksim (melodic exploration).
