Gino Robair – Solo Drums with Ebow [Bug Incision]

fox   11/27/2013   A Library

More vibratory explorations from this Bay Area experimental solo percussionist. Watching his videos online explains a great deal about how these sounds are made: an ebow is a handheld electronic device that uses a magnetic field to interact with a string. In this case, the string is from a guitar and the blade from a street sweeper.

This isn’t casual listening, but pay close attention and you will be rewarded by these minimal abrasions. Individual vibrations are often discernible, which gives the sound a very coarse quality.
