MARTIN DOUGLAS GUITAR
I play a Martin Douglas Guitar, which was gifted to me by Martin himself in May of 2015. It is nothing short of exquisite. How do I explain to you what a guitar of this caliber does for a songwriter? The sound simply flies out of my fingers, and I can feel the love and care poured into the wood. It seems a collaboration between the tree that birthed the wood, the luthier - Martin! - who dreamed up the form, and the player - me! - who plays and sings the sounds to the audience. I am in love.
THE STAR GUITAR
What do you get when you cross sonic light curves (the sound of the twinkle), created courtesy of the brilliant NASA astrophysicist Jon Jenkins, with the sound of a guitar? Well.... you get the StarGuitar of course! Using Ableton Live and the Izotope Spectron electronic music program, I hybridize soundwaves from both sources to get something quite otherworldly. The StarGuitar was featured as a part of the Hip-Hop Space Opera Trio CopperWire. Why not!
