Ahmet and Shtetl

  -- eight-string Ahmet Tekeli saz --

  -- azure carter tamburi --
  -- alan sondheim viola --

working on the saz, added two more strings, tuning
g(3)-d(2)-a(3) somewhat circular. the second half
is played with the sound hole 'door' open on the
end of the body. I think Ahmet and Shtetl are some
of my best playing, stemming from the texts I've
been writing as well, thinking through mourning,
keening, ecstasy, frisson - thinking through hands
and fingers, setting and resetting the instruments
themselves. enjoy, hopefully -
