This is the first post to thingstruments, a blog about strange instruments, pioneers who create them and virtuosos that play them. There will also be posts about software instruments, sound related programs, do-it-yourself guides and even schematics. The instruments will vary a lot, from acoustic to electronic to electromechanical constructions... Basically if it makes a sound, it fits here.
As I get this thing started, I will try my best to have at least one post per day, with two to three being the preference. But let's see how it goes. Posts will be shortish, with pictures & videos, and links to the original pages.
After Tom Whitwell's Music Thing, my all time favourite blog, closed in January 2009, I felt like the internet had a hole in it. This blog will try to fill that hole at least partly, providing some strange & funny news about crazy musical things. It will be no Music Thing, I'm not even a native english speaker, but I'll try my best to make it an entertaining blog!
Let's see how it works!
