Synchronised Electromagnetic & Metaphysical Textures & Drones I-III

Sound-Installation von T.B. Arthur + Schneider TM 

T.B. Arthur + Schneider TM spielen interaktive Klangteppiche aus Feedbacks & Mikrostrukturen mit präparierten elektrischen Gitarren, Effekten und Röhrenverstärkern, die auf die speziellen akustischen Gegebenheiten der Dorfkirche Ihlow aus dem 13. Jahrhundert eingehen. Es entsteht eine Art begehbares Klanginstallation-Konzert, bei dem die Zuhörer an unterschiedlichen Positionen der Kirche die faszinierenden Klangphänomene des Raumes wahrnehmen können. Die Musik ist frei improvisiert und macht die Energie des Ortes hör- und spürbar.

T.B. Arthur + Schneider TM play interactive sound carpets, feedbacks & microstructures with prepared electric guitars, effects and tube amplifiers, which respond to the special acoustic conditions of the Dorfkirche Ihlow from the 13th century. The result is a kind of sound installation – concert, in which the listeners can perceive the fascinating sound phenomena of the room at different positions in the church. The music is freely improvised and makes the energy of the place audible and perceptible.

NEW FEATURE >> PICKUP LESLEE SYNCHRONIZER

Deimel Firestar LesLee Synchronizer

We are very happy to have reached this personal milestone of our guitar works and proud to present the Pickup Leslee® Synchronizer in stereo built into an Experimental Deimel Firestar.
By joining the pulse, generated by the Pickup Leslee® using wave in/wave out patch cable connectivity, it is possible to either send or receive a waveform or sending out a CV signal. It is even possible to do sync recording by using a CV to Midi generator, or to be in sync with video signals for performing artists. We are very much looking forward to see performing artists create interactive art between guitar, electronic music, and performance in the near future.

SCHOOL STRIKE” + GAME CHANGER”

KORA JÜNGER + FRANK DEIMEL ARTIST EDITION 2020: GAME CHANGER”:

This is the first time that we have built an artist edition twin set consisting of a Deimel Firestar guitar and bass. The Deimel Firestar Artist Edition »GAME CHANGER« is a tribute to all kids that have fought and are currently fighting for their ideas and rights around the globe. Greta Thunberg might be the most famous one of our times, but there have been many, many more, just naming a few on the side of the guitar, that influenced the story of all our lives. Taking on this energy both, guitar and bass, come with a built in LesLee and powerful hand wound pickups. The manifold sounds build into both instruments also reflect the broad range of the voices of the brave! 

I make all drawings on paper first and built a big collage that I transfer with a napkin technique onto the prepared woods. A natural matte finish preserves the art work.  

When Grit asked us if I would be interested in a collaboration, we felt very honored. Grits work has inspired us for years. His approach to political and society relevant themes is unique in the guitar world. 

Though Grits and our lives are on different sides of the globe, we are part of one big family and it is on us to keep an eye on it.

SCHOOL STRIKE” + GAME CHANGER”

WILLIAM GRITLASKINS GUITAR SCHOOL STRIKE”:

I build only performance level Steel String, Flamenco and Classical guitars. This is my ‘Mid-size’ steel-string model, with African Blackwood back & sides.

The inlay art was inspired primarily by the activism of Greta Thunberg, and comments on the state of our climate crisis.  Incorporated into the design is Rachel Carson, the author of the 1962 groundbreaking book, SILENT SPRING, credited with kick-starting the modern environmental movement.  The block text on the fretboard: THE CONTROL OF NATURE IS CONCEIVED IN IGNORANCE, is a direct quote from Ms. Carson.  And, inlaid into the upper centre of the back, where the player will see it every time the guitar is picked up,  is the word “Act!”.  This is Ms. Thunberg’s oft-repeated request, that politicians –all of us, really–stop talking and take real action.

I was in conversation with Kora Jünger of Deimel Guitarworks and mentioned the theme of this guitar.  Kora, whom I always admired for the brave and powerful images that she creates on certain models of the guitars built by her husband Frank, immediately connected to it and together we discussed exploring the theme together.  In the end, she did that, but added dimensions to my original approach.  I will let her explain her work.

Together, we felt inspired by the international connection. We gravitated to the idea of exploring the similar themes across both an acoustic and a solid-body electric guitar, as well as on each side of the Atlantic.
