Symphony of the Heart

Just released (as in 5 minutes ago) my most ambitious solo Theremini project to date: the Symphony of the Heart, 37 minutes of spontaneous compositions in six movements. For me it is next to miraculous to be able to paint these rich polyphonic landscapes in a series of single solo recording sessions simply by waving my arms around. Thank you for all your support and encouragement. Sometimes I wonder about myself.

The Whole (or maybe The Bowl)

I wanted to make my Theremini into an an electronic singing bowl that shimmered with harmonics and dripped with drone. My pedal board along with its particle synthesizer and EH Ravish Sitar pedal figure predominately in this ruse.

The Whole

A taste of the last tune from my new live solo Theremin CD, Hand in the Machine. (Download at maddogfriedman.bandcamp.com.)  I wanted to try and make my Theremini into an an electronic singing bowl that shimmered with harmonics and dripped with drone.  My pedal board along with its Electro-Harmonix Superego and  Ravish Sitar pedals figure predominately in this ruse.  I finally got my “AIR HARP” spaceship to take me where I want to go. Now I am not sure if I will ever be able to find my way back again.
