***** HOME SWINGER *****
The Home Swinger is a simplified version of the Moodswinger designed to be easy to assemble and play. It does not feature the slick finished design of the Moodswinger, but is exactly the same sounding instrument. Yuri Landman presents a 4 hour long Do-It-Yourself workshop whereby participants will leave with a finished Home Swinger instrument as well as a strong understanding of its structure and workings. The difficult soldering part will be taken care of by Yuri. Participants require no special skills and the difficulty of the process has been compared to building a piece of IKEA furniture!
In advance of the workshop Yuri will prepare the component parts of the instrument for the participant to use in construction. These include: 4 pieces of ready shaped wood in the required sizes and predrilled with holes, easy to employ machine heads for the strings, one pickup (good quality, equal to Fender), an on/off switch, a jack output, a few screws, bolts and nuts and some metal for the bridges, as well as two sets of strings.
Artists who own a Home Swinger are Micachu, The Luyas, These Are Powers, David Holmes, A Place To Bury Strangers, Ice, Sea, Dead People, The Go!-Team, Action Beat, Jay Malhotra (Kate Nash), We vs. Death, Zoppo, Thread Pulls, Signe Tollefsen, Susies Haarlok, Kapitan Korsakov, At No Bikini Beach, Jad Fair, DAAU, Ex-Easter Island Head, Foot Village and Wu Fei.
The Triochord is an enhanced version of the monochord/Didley Bow. All strings are tuned in unisono giving an excellent natural chorus effect. This instrument workshop is very cheap compared to the other workshops and therefore highly suitable to organise at music education centres and conservatories. The instrument features a common Western logarithmic scale as well as a scale of harmonics.
