The Exactitude of Strings for Amir Vahab


http://www.alansondheim.org/aud06.jpg
http://www.alansondheim.org/Amir.mp3

Solo cura saz. The instrument was set up and altered by
Amir Vahab, a brilliant musician, teacher, and repairer.
The cura is the smallest saz, which makes it necessary
for the tied-on fretting to be incredibly exact (at to a
less than millimeter tolerance). Because of his work, I
can play the cura without worry, moving quickly around
the neck; everything's in tune, unless I'm not of course,
and everything is perfect. Enjoy!

improvisation coupled by sight, see Audacity wouldn't
accept ASIO on this machine and so had to run with MME
on both and couldn't get a signal out of Audacity so
it's a bit of sonic impairment with visual clues as to
