HARD WOOD: DAXOPHONE CONSORT WITH DANIEL FISHKIN, CLEEK SCHREY & RON SHALOM
ISSUE presents composers and instrumentalists Daniel Fishkin, Cleek Schrey, and Ron Shalom — the U.S.’s only extant daxophone consort. The daxophone is a thin wooden strip played with a bow, which was created by the German improviser/inventor Hans Reichel in 1987. The instrument’s sound, somewhere between a cello and badger, ranges from furtive gurgles and delicate whistles to wild screams.
