i guess i am a hypnos artist - hmm. i like the sound of that.
i have added some cool stuff to my arsenal of sound making devices.
i purchased a brass Tibetan bowl but can't figure out how to make it sing. it has a great gong sound, however, and i have used that extensively. stretching one of those tones out makes an awesome atmosphere.
i was searching for violin bows on ebay and found violins instead - cheaper! they were brand new, from china. the shipping is $50 but the violin was only $7! $52 for a violin is a good deal so wow! - i am taking violin lessons. i will also be using the bow on my acoustic guitar, dulcimer and lap harp. it makes some cool noises.
i have also added bamboo chimes, a bodhran, an irish whistle and a native American flute (very small) to my repoirtoire. i am making some cool stuff.
