A blend of contemporary tongue articulation practice and traditional and avantrad textures. The nature of this beast is that it likes to be pushed and then it will truly shine. Amazingly high overtones, amazing sensitivity to all tongue movements. Superloud- good for busking, very rich and precise – good for recording! [...]
We present you Nirvana didgeridoo, a one piece eucalyptus instrument that is hybrid in its qualities. A mixture of the greatest instruments I have ever tried, and used. The three souls of Nirvana will allow you to play more punchy, more responsive and more textured that ever before.[...]
This didgeridoo we made in search of good closed tube response and good aircode response. The result is quite a soft, comfortable didgeridoo to play. There is something extraordinary about the easiness the lips maintain tension on the drone. It is a correlation between the mouthpiece size which is fairly small and backpressure which is fairly high for the key. ” [...]”
For a long while I have been specializing in the art of long didgeridoos. At some point I have realized my skills for making a shorter didgeridoo are lagging. So I chose a very moderately sized log of an unknown (to me) Australian Eucalyptus species and I said to myself. OK, is it possible to bring this log to the moment where precision, power and aliveness meet? [...]
I wanted to combine almost uncombineable. I wanted to combine the Stinkirum kind of kick with this speed of articulations. You see this two aspects are already getting one against the other. As it is difficult to achieve the fullness of the “kick” with very small volume…. Next… to make things even more interesting I wanted to make a deep didgeridoo that could read very well the articulations of traditional way of playing. “[...]”
This is one didgeridoo that I have waited for a long time. It is the first one of the super hard wood, and so it is the first one to give me some answers from that kingdom… Let me tell you a bit about the making of this didgeridoo. Orkor is very hard and very elastic wood. Has very nice smell. It was difficult to drill, but not as difficult as we imagined… The inner geometry of this didgeridoo is more tight than what you could find in recent Duendes.
Protozoa is a didgeridoo… that was an intentional little surprise. The surprise part is this beautiful shimmer it has over what would already be a rounded didgeridoo sound. First of all, Protozoa has very detailed sound. Somehow it got this shimmer, the thick roughness in high frequencies. More than what I expected, especially regarding the fact that it is not made of extremely hard wood.
La Tulipe Noire brings romance back into the world of didgeridoos.
It is gentle but powerful, big but elegant.Standing 239cm tall, thin with curves and knots it now seems impossible to drill. But it once was. It is a thin walled didgeridoo chiseled to resonate. The power of this didgeridoo overwhelms a small room “[...]”
Didgeridoo making process can be a routine, but it can also be a mystical journey. Sometimes there is only a thin line in between. What makes this thin line? A mistake, of course. So it was a very lucky and precious mistake that made La Fluanta. It resulted in quite an extreme resonator box. Which finally resulted in quite an extreme bass and perfect fifth for a first toot. It opens up a whole new world [...]
Flying Tree Dragon is an example of such an extreme in classical conicaly shaped didgeridoo that it is very hard to describe without letting you try it. What does it mean „extreme classical conical shaped didgeridoo“? It means that FTD follows the „logic“ of relatively well known didgeridoos that have flare. But flare of FTD is so deep inside and so large outside that it breaks certain laws of playing… [...]
