Gurdypedia

Documenting the curious world of the hurdy-gurdy.

Interesting performance by Pep Massana and Carles Viarnes of an organistrum and octaved violin.  Piece is a free improvisation about Los Set Gotxs of Libre Vermell, at Sant Pau Vell, Montserrat.

The organistrum is polyphonic and fully chromatic and based on Leonardo Da Vinci’s sketch, built by Ramon Elias in Altet, a small village neat Tarrega.   More details on the instrument itself in this YouTube clip.
