Gurdy and Stratocaster

One cup each; David Wilks, Ryan Wilks, and Jim Winters. I got to record an impromptu duet for my hurdy-gurdy (tekerolant) and the guitar of David Wilks. No format, no rehearsal, no plan, and one take. My inspiration is partly the older masters such as Feldman and Young, but I also muse over younger sound-art masters such as Keiji Haino (above). Phil Niblock has been here to IMRC and composed some work to include the gurdy.

The link below was recorded in mid April (two weeks ago) in AP/PE. David, Ryan’s older brother, arrives with his black Strat., a classic, guitar design. I will continue to refer back to two sessions and post streaming links. Sound Art with the gurdy as self-rising flour.



About the Author:

After Jim Winters arrived as a jazz trombonist for years, he now has now finished his second year as a graduate student here at IMRC. He owns two hurdy gurdys, thus exploring drone-musical work and the aesthetic value of unfinished music. His concentration ranges from experimental-musical composition to photos, sometimes wondering about the colonization of 12-tone Western music vs. noise.
