Thanks to Henry Kaiser for the heads-up on the Harmonic Master 3rd bridge instrument by the Australian company New Complexity . It has six sets of chorused strings, and all 12 strings have independent tuning positions behind the bridge.
Rich Eberlen, the inventor of String Jack, featured in Guitar Moderne last year, has introduced two new products. Solene is a Chapman Stick-like, tapping oriented instrument with a tubular body. And String Rack, which spreads out a set of strings on a 12-string guitar to create a “side” harp. Watch them in action and check them out on his site. You can contact Rich at Info@StringJack.com
Numbers on the Side is Nick Millevoi’s fourth solo guitar recording. On it, he uses 12-string electric guitar to delve more deeply into feedback, drone, and noise.
Millevoi co-leads the band Many Arms (Tzadik) and Haitian Rail (New Atlantis) and is a member of many bands, including Deveykus (Tzadik) and Form and Mess (Sick Room). Nick has performed extensively throughout the US, Canada, and Europe, and has performed at festivals such as Suoni Per Il Popolo/Montreal, Incubate/Netherlands, Gaffer Fest/France, Montreal Jewish Music Festival, New Atlantis Festival/DC, and John Zorn’s Masada Book Three Premiere Concert at New York’s Town Hall.
