As he came up in a post today, here is Robbie Williams live.  Performance starts around 1:18, but the preceding will tell you who he is in the UK (even though he now lives in Los Angeles) -

Tico-Tico no Fubá

"Sparrow in the cornmeal" is a lively song composed in 1917 by Zequinha de Abreu, here in the 1947 move Copacabana, sung by Portuguese-born Brazilian actress Carmen Miranda, noted for her signature fruit-hat outfit she wore in her American films.

UNUSUAL MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS-1


The glass harmonica was invented in 1761 by Benjamin Franklin. It consists of a series of glass bowls or goblets graduated in size to produce musical tones by rubbing a wet finger over them.

A similar result can be obtained with a number of crystal glasses partially filled with water at different heights.

UNUSUAL MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS-2


The theremin was invented by Léon Theremin (Лев Термен), who patented the device in 1928. The theremin is distinguished among musical instruments in that it is played without physical contact. The thereminist stands in front of the instrument and moves his or her hands in the proximity of two metal antennas. The distance from one antenna determines frequency (pitch), and the distance from the other controls amplitude (volume).

Its eerie sounds have been included in various TV series and films, like Forbidden Planet, a 1956 science fiction movie starring Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis and Leslie Nielsen.


Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich was one of the first to incorporate parts for the theremin in orchestral pieces, including a use in his score for the 1931 film Odna.

Visually spectacular but musically insignificant: in the video it plays just a simple 8-note melody in 2 variations.

It uses the same working principle of much older contraptions:

Quote
Forbidden Planet's innovative electronic music score, credited as "electronic tonalities", partly to avoid having to pay any of the film industry music guild fees, [30] was composed by Bebe and Louis Barron... While the theremin (which was not used in Forbidden Planet) had been used on the soundtrack of Alfred Hitchcock's Spellbound (1945), the Barrons' electronic composition is credited with being the first completely electronic film score; their soundtrack preceded the invention of the Moog synthesizer by eight years (1964). Louis Barron constructed his own electronic circuits that he used to generate the score's "bleeps, blurps, whirs, whines, throbs, hums, and screeches".[15] Most of these sounds were generated using an electronic circuit called a "ring modulator".
 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forbidden_Planet#Soundtrack

You can make a 'really poor man's theremin' by putting a marble or small ball bearing inside a balloon and then blowing it up and rolling the marble around inside. Here is another stab at it from the marble man called an Ondophone. It sounds sort of like a theremin ----
 

I have always wanted to build the Barron ring modulator which I saw demoed on TV when I was a kid.

I hadn't listed to Vivaldi in a while.  This is one of my favourite interpretations, but then, I'm sort of partial to the late, great Herbert von Karajan.  Ms Mutter, not so much.

Antonio Vivaldi was born in 1678, seven years before J.S.Bach, G.F  Händel and  D. Scarlatti, yet how much does his music sound more "modern" than the other three's. Bach even quoted him in his harpsichord concertos, a practice then considered a homage rather than a plagiarism - music was not printed until Beethoven's times.

U2 - Mothers of the Disappeared.


I remember listening to this on a Walkman (remember those?)  while on the train from Kyiv to Moscow - platscard, common if you didn't purchase tickets early.  The better half didn't like traveling at this level, but I liked it.  I told him "We are close to the narod."  For me, it was just a representation of life in the USSR. 

In any event, I was listening to this as people around me, during so called glasnost', were debating politics and the latest front page news article by Solzhenitsyn.

Yes, I read that Elvis thought for sure that Roy would surpass him when Elvis went off to the army.

Roy had a 3 octave range.

I think that Roy was held back by his unappealing looks.

Pretty Woman, Only the Lonely and Blue Bayou are really great.

This presentation of Blue Bayou demonstrates his 3 octave ability.

Wifey is off to the windy city for her company's annual seminar so had an alone time this evening and decided to dust off the old faithful to keep me company. Feels sooooo good to play and hear these old faves again. Been a'while..trekked back to memory lane kind'a night for me.

Pardon ol' Neil, the naturalist, LMAO. He's got some pretty nice toned down licks with that 6stringer though. 'A minor pentatonic'...


..and this from Stills' 'dropped D' melody...

While sheltered, I seem to be watching way too many Youtube gloom-and-doom news reports.
When will it all end....Tell me Quando, Quando, Quando
So I take some breaks for entertainment:



Couple #252 in the above video are Armen & Svetlana (in yellow) from Moscow.
Armen is somewhat laid-back and reserved in interviews, but made it to
the top of the competition field.

The two influencing artist/band that inspired me to pick-up that guitar were James Taylor and CS&N (Y). The latter likely the only band that will have that magical 3-part harmony...I feel so fortunate to have seen these guys in concerts more than a few times. They sound as great as ever.

Video below is actually a rare interview inside the band..


Their first song I learned to pick, and as easy a song to play, it is one of my all time favorite song.

Best played on a Taylor

My wife absolutely loves it when I get in the mood to play a lot of these songs for her. Her most requested song is JT's "You can Close Your Eyes'. In the beginning she would always asked, 'pliz, play close my eyes'…Yeah, you guessed right. It's 'cultural'...

Just played this ol' tune for her again this morning.

Better played on Martin D40
