E. Guitar Octave Cascade
Whilst I was in Amsterdam working on a show earlier in 2019, we were using a fairly run down old electric guitar and amp, which had belonged to the theatre for some time. One of the characters used the guitar and amp to show off his skills in the show and so for some of the underscore and soundscape textures during the rest of the piece I wanted to test out using the same sounding guitar and amp in a similar design to the ‘Kristiansand Octave Cascade’ instrument (which plays an initial note followed by a random assortment of octave notes based on the key pressed) to add continuing textures in order to build the guitar theme into the show as through-line.
Here is the result of the experiment, I found theres lots to learn about how a guitar note’s attack differs from the piano and how it feels more realistic to not play it like a piano at all. Also that playing this alongside the Piano version of the octave cascade adds even more to it. Enjoy!
