OT Re: sustainer/Klein-clogging 1

i'll check out those Micahel Hedges tracks; the TT *is* 'capable' of lotsa 
nuancing..... in conjunction w/yer *own* physical techniques & a modicum 
of imagination.

i had ---on loan, in 1988/89--- a steinberger TT w/a polyphonic 'infinite 
sustain' feature: built by ned steinberger, bob wolstein & rick turner, it 
ummmmmm..... rocked. twas never produced, though.
each string had its own on/off switch & 'drive-control' for the sustain 
feature. if i remember correctly, the team also had a mod that'd allow for 
the 'sweeping-through' of the natural harmonic series.
i used that instrument on a mark isham recording; maybe i used guitar that 
on the soundtrack to 'the beast', as well.
just for y'all's info.....

pieces were written specifically for the TransTrem and are very clear and 
direct as far as recording goes.

TransTrem and a unit like the Sustainiac that sustains all strings at 
The sound shifting possibilities seem intriguing.
