The colossal instrument is the proud holder of four Guinness World Records for its size and volume.

Nestled in a group of islands lining the east coast of the United States, Atlantic City, New Jersey is a popular vacation destination, well known for its nightlife, casinos, beaches and the iconic boardwalk. Atlantic City.

Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Boardwalk Hall is home to the Miss America pageant, ice hockey games, live music…and the world’s largest musical instrument.

With 33,112 pipes, the Boardwalk Hall Auditorium organ holds four Guinness World Records, two for its size and two for its breathtaking volume. Hear the glorious sound (above) of this mighty instrument in Bach’s Toccata in D Minor, performed by Thomas Gaynor.

Built between May 1929 and December 1932 by the Midmer-Losh Organ Company, the organ is one of only two in the world to have pipes 64 feet long, the other being the Sydney Town Hall Grand Organ.

Responsible for filling the grand Boardwalk Hall auditorium with its sound, the organ is also the loudest musical instrument ever built. The pressure of the wind blowing through the pipes of the instrument when played is about 30 times stronger than that of normal organ playing.

Its sound is described in the Guinness Book of World Records as “a pure trumpet note of deafening volume, six times louder than the loudest train whistle”, and it was dubbed the “Sonic Mount Rushmore” by the Historic Organ Restoration Committee.

The organ’s main console is also breaking records with its seven manual keyboards and more than 1,200 stops lining its walls.

The organ has undergone several decades of restoration, since being damaged by a hurricane in 1944 and further destruction by renovations to the hall in 2001. As of 2020, more than half of the organ is operating at new.

Kia hopes to ignite people’s creativity with a brand new musical instrument that takes advantage of pink noise and natural recordings.

To promote the Kia Instruments—a plug-in downloadable on Windows or macOSX—the automaker has launched a designer contest with SoundCloud inviting artists to write and record a song for a chance to soundtrack the brand’s upcoming global ad campaign.

Kia has captured natural sounds of movement including those of the Cheonggyecheon River in Korea, winds in the Sahara Desert, beach waves in Scotland, birds and rain falling in the Amazon rainforest. Working with DaHouse Audio and synth builder Arthur Joly, Kia turned the sounds into an instrument which it also used to develop a new sound logo, “Kia: Movement That Inspires”, as well as welcome and welcome sounds. goodbye to his all-electric Kia. EV6 vehicle.

The automaker has also recruited up-and-coming artists to create a four-track album using the tool. All of the tracks created followed neuroscientific metrics covering beats per minute, harmonic progressions, melodic intervals and texture, Kia said. The compositions were then tested in the laboratory on people’s brains using EEG equipment.

In a two minute spot detailing behind the scenes of the musical instrument, Kathrine Templar Lewis, creative scientist and futurist, said:

“We found that people were more creative when they listened to the songs…you could see increased alpha and theta power, seen brainwave coherence, and increased connectivity, especially connecting the occipital and frontal parts of the brain, where our emotional control center is located, and areas related to increased creativity and flow states.

The Kia instrument has a touch-sensitive keyboard that lets you play as you go. You can create endless patterns, record your loops, play them back in real time, and modulate sounds with the dials. Plus, key buttons light up when playing, providing quick visual orientation.

Kia has teamed up with SoundCloud to host a creator contest promoting its new tool. To enter, fans must create a completely original song using the sounds of the Kia instrument. The winning entry will take home $5,000 cash, have their music featured in a global Kia advertising campaign, and be part of SoundCloud marketing and video content. Kia is accepting entries until May 10.

The activation comes as Kia and live music and entertainment venue the Forum announced that the latter will be known as Kia Forums, marking the first naming rights deal in the United States for the automaker. The Kia Forum will include new exterior and interior signage, the installation of electric vehicle charging stations and displays of Kia vehicles from the EV6 onwards. The creation of the “Kia Club”, an exclusive reception lounge for the enjoyment of car and music lovers, is also in preparation.

More recently, Kia’s marketing efforts have been rewarded with two awards. Its “Movement That Inspires” broadcast campaign, a key part of the automaker’s new brand identity in the United States, was named Best Non-Luxury Automotive Campaign of 2021 by EDO and its “Times Square Takeover” for the Kia EV6 was awarded “Best Interactive Execution or Campaign” by MediaPost.

Baku, March 17, AZERTAC

Saz is an ancient stringed musical instrument from Azerbaijan, which is also considered one of the symbols of the Turkish world and Turkish spirituality.

Ashig (folk) songs – an essential part of Azerbaijani wedding celebrations, are often accompanied by balaban (small wind instrument resembling zurna) and wind ensembles, but the main musical instrument in these songs is the saz .

An integral part of ashig art, rooted in the tradition of the great ozans, the saz is played with plectrum and fingering.

There are several sizes of saz: large (8-11 strings), medium (8-9 strings) and small (4-7 strings).

The modern Azerbaijani saz is considered the perfect descendant of the gopuz. The modern Azerbaijani saz differs from the saz prevalent among other Turkic peoples in terms of technical performance and acoustic characteristics, with considerable advantages.

The instrument is composed of 2 parts: a bowl and a handle. The body of the saz is made of specific types of mulberry wood. The handle is made of walnut wood. The surface is usually decorated with mother-of-pearl.

The trunk of the body is assembled from odd-numbered pieces of wood (usually nine). These offsets are assembled on a small piece called the “kup”, which connects the body to the neck. The neck is attached to the “kup”. The upper body is covered with a thin wooden soundboard and 16-17 frets are attached to the fingerboard of the instrument.

The “tavar saz”, or “ana saz”, has nine, sometimes eight strings. The smallest “orta” or “goltug” saz has six, sometimes seven strings.

The “jura saz”, ​​which is the smallest, has four to six strings. Strings were once made of high quality steel tempered in a silver solution; these ropes have never rusted and only broken in very rare cases.

In an orchestra of national instruments, the saz is used as a solo instrument. Usually the saz “goltug” or “jura” is used for this purpose. The sound of the saz is produced using a plectrum, which, as a rule, is made from the bark of a cherry tree.

The basic “Tavar” saz has a total length of 1,200 mm. The depth of the body is 200 mm. The range of the tavar saz goes from the “do” of the first octave to the “sol” of the second octave.

December’s tornadoes caused so much loss to Kentuckians across the state – loss of home, loss of loved ones, loss of peace of mind.

But Michael Jonathan, creator and host of WoodSongs Old Time Radio Hour, recorded at the Lyric Theater in Lexington, said tornadoes won’t force people to lose the joy of music.

the WoodSongs Tornado Relief Effort collected approximately 1,000 donated instruments.
They will be distributed on March 18 and 19 to anyone who has lost an instrument in tornadoes.

Currier’s Music World in Richmond, Kentucky is an instrument collection and restoration center. WKU Public Radio reporter Rhonda Miller spoke with Cathy Currier about the truckloads of instruments that arrived from Kentucky, Indiana, Maryland, Tennessee and elsewhere.

Mail : Well, you know, at this point I think I’ve done one of everything – clarinets, flutes, trumpets, lots of guitars, banjos, fiddles, a dobro, mandolins. We have harmonicas. Someone gave me a nice sound card yesterday. We hope a church will be able to use. Guitar amps and amplifiers. I swear, almost everything.

Miller: Where do you keep all these things?

Mail : Well, I’m really lucky to have my square footage in my store which is around 8,000 square feet. Funny thing is, when Michael called me in December or January, I can’t remember, we were trying to get rid of the basement, give it away to sublet, to reduce part of our rent. And then Michael calls me and says, “You have this department store. And that’s what we do. And can you help me? And I said, “Yes.” We actually had someone look at the basement the day he called me and I said, “Yeah, we don’t really have any takers for the basement yet.” So let’s do that. And I have 4,000 square feet there. Large area.

Miller: And of course your basement is air-conditioned.

Mail : Oh my God, yeah, absolutely. We have drum lessons there. I have a full wood store there. Because we talked to the landlord and he may not raise our rent. So we could keep the basement. He seems to need it a lot here lately. So we may have to reorganize and rethink the idea of ​​getting rid of the basement, because it is very practical.

Miller: And it doesn’t look like a real basement.

“It’s Kentucky. There’s no state in the union, I don’t think, that has that many musicians, except maybe Tennessee. I mean, you know, there’s a guitarist on every street corner.

Catherine Currier

Mail : Yes, it’s really nice and dry.

Miller: What did you hear? Or have you seen anything like that, as far back as this collection of instruments for tornado victims?

Mail : No never. Never. I’ve never heard of, you know, when you have big disasters, you always hear about food and clothing. And, you know, and things like that for people and helping them with shelter and necessities, whether it’s a toaster oven or whatever, microwaves. But I’ve never heard of someone, like Michael Jonathan, coming up with that because that’s, he knows that’s what’s so important to us, is the music.
I mean, I’m in a small town of 60,000 and my business has been thriving and thriving for 55 years because there are so many instruments to fix and sell and be, you know, we teach here. It is such a need. And that’s why I really like participating in it. You know, music is very dear to my heart. So, I couldn’t say no to Michael because I would never say no to someone who asks me something if it’s in my power to do so.

Miller: So you’re basically restoring a lot of instruments.

Mail : Every one of them, pretty much.

Miller: That sounds good. Well, Kathy, that’s really, really interesting. This is what sounds like a fantastic project. Thank you, Kathy. Good conversation with you. Bye.

Mail : Thanks Rhonda. Bye.

Miller: I spoke with Cathy Currier about her family business Currier’s Music World. The instruments will be donated Friday, March 18 to the Graves County Public Library in Mayfield. They will be offered Saturday, March 19 at the West Dawson Music Venue in Dawson Springs and at the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum in Owensboro.

The cost of renting or buying a quality instrument can be a barrier for Pueblo children interested in music.

To help get instruments into the hands of kids who want them but can’t afford them, the Colorado Bringing Music to Life Instrument Drive is accepting donations of gently used instruments through March 20.

Since the program began in 2010, 16 schools in the Pueblo area have received instruments.

Josh Muller, a group teacher at Vineland Middle School, said many of his students would not be able to participate in the group without the items donated at the drive.

“It’s been a lifesaver,” he said. “Many of our students cannot afford instruments and would not experience a band if it weren’t for the Bringing Music to Life Instrument Player directly and the instruments that have were graciously donated.”

Support for Ukraine: Pueblo West Women’s League Offers Support to Ukraine on International Women’s Day

The Pueblo Academy of Arts, another school that received instruments through the drive, has nearly 30 trumpets, 11 flutes, nine clarinets, three tenor saxophones and several cellos in its inventory, thanks to the drive.

“Sometimes they (Bringing Music to Life) just have leftover unclaimed instruments,” said Lyman Bushkovski, professor of instrumental music at PAA. “They called and said, ‘Hey, we’ve got this left, do you want it? “”

“I said, ‘What, three flutes, a cello and a tenor? Yeah, give it away,’ he said. “‘Bring it here’, ’cause if it doesn’t stay in this room , he will likely go to one of our other schools in the district through inter-district loans.”

Instrument order started by Colorado Public Radio host

Steve Blatt, executive director of Bringing Music to Life, started the instrument player in 2010 while hosting a classical music program with Colorado Public Radio. Over 6,500 instruments were donated statewide.

Donations go primarily to eligible schools for Title Ia program supporting primary and secondary education programs with high percentages of economically disadvantaged students.

“A lot of Title I schools don’t have a lot of money to apply to arts, music, etc.,” Blatt said. “You could say that almost every program in Colorado doesn’t have adequate funding for orchestra and band. That’s the way it is.”

Pueblo D60 programs that have received reader instruments include PAA, Centennial High School, Central High School, Corwin International Magnet School, East High School, Haaf Elementary, Heaton Middle School, Risley International Academy of Innovation, Roncalli STEM Academy, and South High School .

Heroes Academy K-8 also received instruments before closing in 2017.

Continued: Belmont Elementary School Raises Funds for Boulder County Students Affected by Marshall Fire

In addition to Vineland, schools in Pueblo County School District 70 that received instruments include Avondale Elementary, Pleasant View Middle School, Rye High School and Sierra Vista Elementary.

“Probably 95 percent” of PAA ensemble instrument students use school-provided instruments, Bushkovski said.

“Most of them are good instruments” donated by Colorado Bringing Music to Life, Bushkovski said.

Eighth grade AAP student Matilda Kuble, who previously played the flute, developed a preference for the saxophone when she played an instrument donated to her school by Bringing Music to Life.

“Although it has a few bumps, it’s not like a brand new shiny horn, it still works for me and helps me play and express myself,” she said.

Bringing Music to Life accepts donations of brass, strings, guitars, electronic keyboards, percussion and wind instruments. They do not accept donations of grand pianos or organs.

Community members may deposit instruments at the Pueblo School District 60 Administration Building, 315 W. 11th St., 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, through March 20.

Those who do not have an instrument can make monetary donations to the organization’s repair funds.

While the deadline for donations is March 20, schools can apply to receive instruments until March 31.

Guitar maker Bill Tippin knows that musicians, like many others, have had more free time during the pandemic. He’s more than happy to get a guitar in these hands, but anyone interested in his handcrafted instruments will have to wait: with a recent spike in business, his waiting list is a year and a half long. .

Located on the Marblehead seafront, Tippin Guitars (tippinguitars.com781-631-5749) has been building custom flattop acoustic guitars since 1995. With an emphasis on high-quality wood and custom instruments, Tippin says he’s built his customer base without any advertising.

“All of my business comes from word of mouth, and that’s given me a trail of clients all these years,” he says.

CB Fisk Inc.

CB Fisk of Gloucester only builds a few pipe organs each year, and it’s easy to see why.

The company (cbfisk.com, 978-283-1909) is known worldwide for its intricate organs, each of which is one-of-a-kind and custom-made for its new home. Craftsmen use techniques dating from the 15th to 20th centuries to make the organs, ranging from casting their own metal pipe from lead and tin alloys to hand-cutting cow bones to make the surface of the keys. After each organ is built, it takes several months to perfect the sound of the pipes, a process known as harmonization.

“We never build the same instrument twice,” says Dana Sigall, a builder with the company, adding that the organs are operated by mechanical key action and involve little or no electronics.

The company was founded by Charles B. Fisk, a physicist who continued organ building after joining the Manhattan Project. She has made instruments for clients around the world, including Harvard’s Memorial Church and Lausanne Cathedral in Switzerland.

Benoit Rolland

A master of bow making, Benoît Rolland’s curriculum vitae includes a MacArthur “genius scholarship” and training in the French town of Mirecourt, one of the world capitals of violin making. However, the people he made bows for are equally impressive – a who’s who of legends, including violinist Yehudi Menuhin and cellists Yo-Yo Ma and Mstislav Rostropovich.

Rolland sees his job as a lifelong quest. “I keep asking myself how the bow can be improved, how to facilitate the interaction between the musician and the bow,” he says. “The instrument makes the sound, the bow makes the music.”

The magic happens in his workshop in Watertown (benoitrolland.com, 617-744-0678), bathed in light through the windows. Each bow – for violin, viola or cello – is made from dense and heavy Brazilian Pernambuco wood, prized for the way it transmits the vibrations of the instrument to the player, and the hair of a horse’s tail. It takes about two to three weeks to make a bow, and Rolland’s waiting list is about four years. Given his mastery, it’s worth the wait.

Implements for seed drills

Half of the folk duo Carling & Will, William Seeders Mosheim knows a lot about music. When it comes to his livelihood building instruments, he learned that the more parts you make by hand, the better.

At Seeders Instruments (seedersinstruments.com, 802-768-1215) — nestled on a wooded hillside in Dorset, Vermont — he shares a bright workshop with his father, a fine furniture maker, and his steelworker brother. There he crafts banjos with painstaking care, making almost all the parts himself. “I don’t have to rely on other manufacturers to supply my rims, supply my inlays, supply my hardware,” Mosheim says. “I can really hone all the tunes that go into my instruments.”

He adds, “There’s nothing better than seeing the instruments I create continue to make great music in the hands of other artists.”

William S. Haynes Co.

The William S. Haynes Co., now located in Acton, has many “firsts” to its credit. No wonder he was a leader in his field of flute making.

The company (wmshaynes.com978-268-0600) was created in 1888, after the principal flautist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra commissioned brothers William and George Haynes to build him an instrument. He is credited with producing the first American-made 18-karat gold flute in 1896; according to the society, George Haynes later invented the standard method for making holes in silver flutes.

Today, the company remains one of the leading flute manufacturers, making silver, platinum and gold instruments for leading orchestral flutists around the world. During the pandemic, many adults who used to play the flute are looking to pick up the instrument, fueling a surge in sales, says sales manager Korinne Smith. “In 2022, we are living a record year.”

Christophe White Violins

Chris White has long known he was destined to be a luthier – and one who constantly looks to the past for inspiration. “I couldn’t see myself doing anything else,” he says.

Educated at North Bennet Street School in Boston – where he had worked as a substitute teacher until three years ago – White is a fixture in the area, crafting bespoke violins, violas and cellos from his home in West Roxbury (christopherwhiteviolins.com, 617-323-8831). He says it’s been a lifelong obsession to imitate the Italian masters; his violins are inspired by the work of famous luthiers such as Antonio Stradivari and Joseph Guarneri.

OnFife hopes to peak with a new project in Lochgelly that aims to open up the world of music to more Fifers.

The Cultural Trust is looking to launch a musical instrument lending library this spring and has appealed for donations of unused or unwanted instruments.

The new service, which will be based at the Lochgelly Centre, will allow anyone wishing to try out an instrument to do so without the cost of purchase.

“This is a really exciting project and the partners we work with including St Andrews Music Participation, Tinderbox and the Music Education Partnership Group have shared their passion and expertise so we can make some noise with this new service,” said Karen Taylor, creative instigator at OnFife.

“But to really hit a high mark, we’d like people to get involved by donating instruments that are no longer in use or wanted and know they’re going to be put to good use.”

All donated instruments will be cleaned and repaired if necessary before being available in the library.

A date is yet to be confirmed for the launch, but once it’s live, OnFife will also look to offer training videos, how-to sessions and workshops to make music as accessible to everyone as possible.

“Donating is easy – just take it to your local library,” Karen said. “It would also be great if you could leave your contact details so that we can thank you for your contribution.”
