Music

As well as Irish harp or clàrsach, I have other diverse and strange musical interests.

I was taught English change-ringing by my mother when I was a young boy. I am still involved in the ringing scene. I also learned trumpet and trombone as a schoolboy, though I don’t currently have or play either.

I have dabbled with experimental electronic music using Alexander Zolotov’s ANS spectral synthesiser.

I have written online research projects about the Spitzharfe or Arpanetta, and also about the bowed-lyre or Jouhikko

I occasionally play jouhikko or fiddle.
