    OT: Wittgenstein blues

    Hello!

    Yesterday I had a little party with my friends to plan this years motorcycle trip. I've had as a small task for a long time to transform M.A. Numminen's version of Wittgenstein's
    "Vovon man nich sprechen kann" to a blues.
    No easy task, but found a variation that worked out..
    A friend filmed it.
    Hope you enjoy!

    You turned so red toward the end that I thought your head would explode!

    Great job,

    Please take all the time you need; just don’t pick up a poker in anger.

    In fact I enjoy reading both philosophers.

    VERY COOL!!!We have a musician here!!!
    I am definitely no musician(but I used to play a little trumpet and clarinet) so I must ask what type of instrument is that? Looks like some electro-clarinet?

    The intrument I'm playing here is an EWI.
    It is an abbreviation of electronic wind instruments. It's basically a midi controller.
    The instrument and its counterpart for brass musicians (EVI) was invented by the American trumpeter Nyle Steiner in the 80's. Akai Professional, bought the patent and began mass production. The current model being sold is the Akai 4000S.

    It is a fantastic instrument with great expressive possibilities but requires a lot of programming and practise, at least if you want to create your own unique sound.

    One of the greatest EWI-players I think, was the great saxophonist Michael Brecker, who unfortunately passed away in 2007

    I think it is primarily saxophonists who play the EWI. It occurs sometimes in film music, so you've probably heard it some times before, but not being aware of what sounds.

    Greetings
    Peter
