Es and Haamuaudio mod a Memory Man with Hazarai

I’ve had the Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai for couple of years now. I bought from Philadephia while on tour there with Kemialliset Ystävät. It’s the best loop pedal I’ve had so far. I’ve tested quite a few and this one definately suits my style of playing.

Panasonic GH1 user experiences

Since I graduated from school in 2005 I haven’t really been able to afford to shoot on film anymore. I made a big investment in 2008 and got a Sony EX1 and a Letus Extreme and a bunch of good Canon FD lenses. A year later I sold the EX1 and the Letus and got the Panasonic GH1.

Es Fingerpiano


This is something I built that turned out really excellent sounding. I used it a lot playing live. Not so much on the albums though.

The box is made out of thin plywood and the slices you pluck are cut from an old saw. I left them so that they can be easlily moved and thus tuned a bit.

Stringcycle

I Began doing this in 2001 summer. The idea is quite simple. There’s 40 strings attached to a turntable. The turntable spins and guitar microphones pick up the sound from the vibrating strings as they pass them.
