this didgeridoo's middle name. It's a relatively early didge that I made about three years ago. It's the didgeridoo that
can be heard on Horivertizontal. It's made of a pretty hard and dense yucca stalk that is heavier than
normal yucca and yields a really unusual sound. It's not your typical deep low resonant meditative B didge but rather one
that is full of color and character. It responds well to moderately tongued rhythms but it's the vocal capabilities is where
it really shines. The open harmonics allow you to explore and play with
many, many different cosmic sounds that can, if you so choose, take you to the far reaches where VY Canis Majoris resides. It also sports an octave horn which makes it all the more fun to play. One admitted drawback of this didge is a very unreliable second horn and a somewhat
reliable third horn. Just wanted to throw that disclaimer in there so there are no surprises. Other than that, it's a fun
didge to play and explore with.
Ok so here's the story
part. Some of you may remember the full lunar eclipse we had about a year and a half ago. It was cloudy here in Seattle that
night so I grabbed Channa and sat for 45 minutes with the intention of parting the clouds. I REALLY wanted to see that eclipse!
The clouds parted a few minutes before the start or eclipse and it stayed clear (at least where I was) until the end, then
they gathered back up and it rained. Say what you will about this experience. I got to see the eclipse. :-)
