'Pataphysical music from Hang Drum
The Hang drum, from the Bernese Swiss dialect for "hand" - yes, the Swiss always sound as if they have a cold - is a wonderful instrument. Last night I was lucky enough to meet two skilled players. Looking today on the web, I found (a) that it is almost literally impossible to buy one and (b) this page on eBay where one can buy a CD of Hang music (only until November 12).
Now, on this page you can also listen to excerpts from the tracks.
All at once. Turn your sound up; get them ALL going.
This is 'Patamusic at its best.
