raw footage from my GoPro Hero 3 white edition.
Pan on my lap is an XXD sound model from Pantheon Steel.
The pan to my right is a PanART Hang.
Special thanks to Kyle Cox for helping make this recording possible.
This is the first musical short in HD (aka musical short film) by Eliodora & The Suns, featuring Jessica Styler & Aharon Wheels Bolsta, and directed and filmed by Nathanael Trimboli ( videographica.com/ ) and Whitney Missildine. The film is titled 'The Duet'. The instrument we play is called the PANArt Hang. It is a very special and new acoustical musical instrument/art creation from Switzerland. It is a means through which we express ourselves. Find out more at: jessicastyler.com or visit our Facebook page: facebook.com/eliodoraandthesuns OR buy our records at jessicastyler.bandcamp.com
The Halo is Pantheon Steel's addition to a new family of instruments and sound sculpture descended from the steel pan. It is a resonant steel instrument played by hand in the lap; it is designed to engage the body and mind of the player in a new way. Rich in timbre and very expressive, and with no "wrong" notes to play, the Halo is made for free improvisation and meditative exploration.
This video is a showcase of the new Halo tuning "Aegean".
The central note is C and the tone circle surrounding it consists the following 8 notes: E G B C E F# G B.
Special thnx to Kyle, Jim & Aaron @ Pantheon Steel.
