Hurdy Gurdy w/ Low Tech recording & edit with Audacity
Workshop Leader: James Winters
Date / Time: Thursday April 20th @ 5pm
Location: IMRC AV Labs
For those curious about the hurdy gurdy and its place in ethnomusicology, this workshop is aimed at questions about the gurdy and tekerolant, an instrument that is currently being looked at for experimental-musical pieces here at IMRC.
This workshop will allow participants to try actually playing a hurdy gurdy, along with a look at its unique history. Learn about the construction of the instrument and its variant forms starting from the mid 19th century. A Barcus Berry planar wave contact microphone will be observed and experienced as an added feature to this workshop experience.
