Derek Holzer creates noise-making contraption using a hurdy-gurdy like object attached to some painful electronic circuitry.  Don’t think this is going to catch on.  Very arty though.

Hurdy-Gurdy music show

image

On 31 August, Dutch streaming music site, Concertzender, had an hour-long show devoted to hurdy-gurdy music.  An archived recording of the show is available on their site here (click the small speaker link towards the top of the page).

They say “This episode of Metamorphoses about unusual instruments is an hour long focus on the hurdy-gurdy. Often the instrument has been maligned as a simple melody instrument that was merely suitable to accompany dancing. However, the instrument was in the distant past used by the troubadours to accompany their songs and classical works were composed for it. The hurdy largely disappeared from the stage, afterwards remaining only in some countries like France. In recent decades there has been a revival, in which the construction of the instrument, the playing technique and repertoire went through a revolution.

The show features the following set:

  1. Malicorne - Le Branle des Chevaux (trad)
    Le Bestiaire - Ballon Noir  082303
  2. Blowzabella - The New Hornpipes (D Shepherd)

    Antologia - Robi Droli RDC015
  5. Vizöntö - Springdance (Kiss)
    Best - Pan Records 145 CD
  6. Hölderlin Express -  Jumping Eggs (Olav Krauss)
    Hölderlin express - Akku Disc ADCD 3025
  7. Garmana - Varulven (The Werewolf)  (Gotte Rinqvist)
    Guds spelemän - Xource XOUcd 113
  8. Wolverlei - Malbroek/Wilhelmusdans/Swart laat ‘m scheren (trad)
    Wolverlei - Munich 7445

Old hurdy-gurdy on ebay

image

The seller says,

We have had this Hurdy Gurdy in a cupboard gathering dust for 20 years. We are having a clear out and decided to offer it and see if anyone is interested in acquiring it. It looks nice, but doesn’t work, and is in need of total restoration, if indeed it is restorable. “Ludovicus Guersan propè Comoediam Gallicam Lutetiae Anno 1761” Ludovicus Guersan was a musical instrument maker from Paris whose instruments are now quite valuable. Anyway, it is broken, but looks nice.  If anyone likes the look of it, happy bidding.

Item is here.
