Balloon Bass
Posted by LinusMines in entertainment 8 years ago
The balloon bass is a musical instrument made of one round balloon and two skinny (twisting) balloons... The balloon bass is a three-and-one-half octave instrument, costs about $.15 to make, and can last for months at a time.  
 
Sean Rooney devised the principle of the balloon resonator in 1992 and invented an instrument he called the balloon guitar. He showed Addi Somekh how to make the resonator one afternoon in 2000 in Montreal. Since then, Addi has made various modifications on Sean's original design, developing more of a bass-type instrument.  
 
People encountering the balloon bass for the first time are often struck by how such a strange and simple contraption can produce such a variety of sounds (including very low bass notes) and by the fact that one can really play tunes on it...
 
 
Site includes links to performances by Addi solo and with other musicians (YouTube channel), and full album (Air, Rubber and Soul) available for [free music] download.
On Sept. 9, 2009 I experienced something that I still am having trouble believing happened to me.  
 
I came into the possession of a cassette tape containing a Beatles album that was never released.  
 
I don't expect you to believe what happened to me, I sure wouldn't, but that's why I grabbed the tape as proof that my experience was real.  
 
If you want to download the album use the links to the left or grab the zip file!

October 6, 2009 - For guys who seem to have done everything, sometimes all at once, The Flaming Lips' members haven't stopped innovating. Centered on Wayne Coyne and his manic creative energy, the group continues to push itself toward change and experimentation. That's certainly true in the case of the new Embryonic, which showcases yet more shape-shifting. You can listen to the new album here, in its entirety, a week before it hits stores on Oct. 13.

Despite the continual legal pursuit of music file-sharing "criminals" by the "RIAA, the ability to find great music and create a significant music library at virtually no cost is still quite feasible. So we'll start by dividing this into categories and giving a few examples of what we know. But it's up to you to fill in the blanks.

This is my (= Frank Mc Gahon) account of 3 years of record digging in West Africa. The archive below shows you all my previous posts, the ones which end with "-MP3-" will lead you towards one hour long mixes recorded with records found on my trips. I just added a horribly shakey lo-definition road clip video and more text to the "fetishes of kissidougou" post so even those who have read this one before might want to check it out.  
 
He's trying to track down the fruits of the '70s African funk boom, before all the vinyl decays or gets lost, and meeting the people who made the records along the way.

A mashup is a piece of music formed by mixing elements of at least two existing songs together, usually by combining the acappella part of one song with the music track of another. If you're at all interested in sampling, or if you're curious about this fascinating and controversial musical genre, these 18 albums, around 200 tracks and extra bonus links should provide plenty of inspiration!
