After this I ran into some problems and have decided to iron them out before I publish any more. The sticks I used were soft wood. They need to be hard as they warped too easily. SO - I am going to wait until I am in the workshop in Girgarre and continue this online blog once we get a few instruments for the orchestra made there, so stay tuned.
POLARIS - Holly and Ted's new show premiered with success
I have designed sound and built instruments for Holly and Ted's new show POLARIS that previewed last week with shows at Cornerstone Arts Centre, Didcot and Playbox Theatre, Warwick, to great success. It is a beautifully told story about violence in language featuring dinosaurs, schoolgirls and space captains. Two shows at Theatre Royal, Stratford East Feb 6 and 14. More info about the sound design on this page
PREPARING THE GARGARRO GALA
An article written for the local Girgarre Gazette (to be published after Easter and previewed here) describes the process of creating an orchestra of locals with DIY instruments, then writing a major work for them.

THE STRING CANS PROJECT is about splitting a guitar into six single-string tin-can instruments for use in community orchestras.
This blog documents it as it evolves. The blueprints will be published and available for free to anyone who would like to build one.
Change the music world,
one string at a time.
