NEMO 035
year: 2011

project coordinator:Nick Robinson
mastering: Nick Robinson
artwork:Nick Robinson


A harmonic is "an overtone accompanying a fundamental tone at a fixed interval, produced by vibration of a string, column of air, etc. in an exact fraction of its length". My first encounter with them was as a teenager, watching mystified as Rory Gallagher moved his hands down the neck but the notes played got higher! I eventually learned what they are and to this day, remain fascinated by the bell-like purity of guitar harmonics. For this project, harmonics of any kind were deemed acceptable, even "comb filter resonance" which Michael Peters assures me are harmonics.

I used recordings made in Pecs, Hungary and a sample from a live performance with The Hat Effect. To create the harmonics I fed 3 tracks of the four-track recorder with the same recording, each with a slightly different pitch. The development of the piece is of course due to the many recorded fragments I used. Extra voice on "Welcome to the Crypt" is by Jeff Surak.
