Iner and the Single String

photo by Ravi Persaud
This is an image of me playing the single string with an Ebow. I run the instrument through an effects processor. Also running through the processor is a short wave radio I use to dial in foreign language radio station, or sometime just use it to play the static and other interesting sounds I find floating around the air waves. There is also a tone generator sitting underneath the short wave radio. Finding a tone and running it through a wah pedal and volume pedal will always produce interesting results. Click here to download a track Tony and I recorded called Lone Prairie. I used a lot of this junk to record my sound design for a short film i'm working on. Click on Caraticus Sea to hear some of the tracks, or click on Iner lost in time and space to see some of the images.
