more sketches

I'm very close to my baritone design now - but since last time I said this I created a alternative design with an upper horn, so now I have to choose between e & f...
Anyway, next month I can go back to the work-bench after months filled with performances and travels, and before a new performance series in autumn!

DJ Third Arm & the Tentacles

A few month ago I was invited to join the art noise band DJ Third Arm & the Tentacles for a concert in Performance Hotel in Stuttgart. At some point I stopped playing to shoot this short video where you can see impro guitarist David Bausseron playing his MIDI nylon string Godin and Michl Schmidt with... er... well, his third arm messing with cheap turntables... It was a very cool (and noisy) concert!

the Televangelist gets lipstick


The new lipstick on my Televangelist sounds as good as it looks, and the upgraded guitar was baptized on stage tonight... Unfortunately I also changed the varnish to a glossy lack that looks quite awful and was damaged already during the performance - when the previous finish resisted the rehearsals much better. So I have to sand it off and start again...

the Televangelist in action

This guitar is not a concert guitar but was built to be used in the hardcore art cabaret performance series Dancing on Ashes - the picture was shot during the last show, yesterday in Berlin...

baritone project

Here it comes again, carried by a spring breeze, the recurent baritone project... This is what seems to be the proper design, but I said that before for other attempts... Anyway I let it macerate a couple of weeks, build a cardboard model and then we'll see!

a lipstick pickup for the Televangelist

Just received a brand new GFS telecaster bridge lipstick pickup Pro-Tube for the Televangelist, will mount it as soon as possible because this guitar with be central for next friday's new Angel Meat performance.

It's good to go back to the workbench - and if everything works like planed, I should start again on my projects next June, when I have achieve what I've busy with since last fall...
