Robert Rutman Steel Cello Ensemble, Zuuhh

07 febrero 2009 | |

Robert Rutman is an instrument inventor who created the steel cello in the early '70s. The instrument is a large sheet of steel suspended vertically, with a wire stretching between the two right corners. This string is bowed, and the curved steel acts as a resonator. The player can fret the string to produce a wide range of pitches, and can also use the instrument for percussive sounds. All of these techniques are exploited here by a quartet of players.

This collection is a good exploration of new areas of instrument building, as well as a fine ambient and drone release in its own right.
