Yaybahar by Görkem Şen from Olgu Demir on Vimeo. Creative Commons License: by-nc-nd

I saw this online and was amazed by this crazy instrument.

Yaybahar is an electric-free, totally acoustic instrument designed by Gorkem Sen. The vibrations from the strings are transmitted via the coiled springs to the frame drums. These vibrations are turned into sound by the membranes which echo back and forth on the coiled springs. This results in an unique listening experience with an hypnotic surround sound.

What you hear in this performance is captured in realtime without any additional effects and with no post audio processing.

For contact:


Instrument: Yaybahar
Performence: Görkem Şen
Video: Levent Bozkurt
Video Editing: Olgu Demir
Sound Mix: Mert Aksuna

Suffolk and Cool

My old mate, Peter Clitheroe, has decided to hang up his “weekly” headphones at Suffolk and Cool.  It was no mistake that Clithers and I started podcasting just a day apart. We’ve had some musical agreements, and some musical differences (not in the “Band Splits” way, you understand), but Peter has always been clear about one thing: Quality!

He doesn’t say he’s giving up totally, and I’m sure there will be the occasional mumbling, or a video, now and again to remind us of the man with “the smile in his voice”, as someone once said to me.

So, as a little extra treat this week, join me in listening to SnC#429…..
