Electronic Music from the Aether

Gravikords, Whirlies and Pyrophones

In this fantastic book, Bart Hopkin unveils the pioneering work of musical innovators like Harry Partch, Luigi Russolo and Leon Theremin. Wendy Chambers' Car Horn Organ reveals its charms on a rousing version of "New York, New York." A complex ensemble of glass instruments from Jean Claude Chapuis takes up where Ben Franklin left off on his Glass Harmonica. Engaging photographs and text display for readers the lengths to which these 37 eccentric and brilliant inventors have gone in their quests for innovation and beauty. The accompanying full-length CD features 18 of the most interesting musical examples of the instruments featured in this book. Introduction by Tom Waits!
