Master Aeolian Harp Maker
Edgewood, New Mexico, USA
This work, consisting of three Album, is a sonorous journey from the origin of organic life on Earth to the singularity inside a black hole.
Album 1 - The Journey of the Procaryote Colony
Album 2 - Journeying on the Edge of the Trombe Marine (waterspouts, tornadoes)
Album 3 - Journey to Perseus A. Perseus Galaxy Cluster
A brief explanation of some of the musical instruments used by Oreobambo on Energy Journeys
Album 1 - Track 4
The Parasaurolophus Walkeri was a herbivore dinosaur more than ten meters tall, with a crest containing a metre long resonating chamber. It was possibly the first musical instrument in the organic world.
The sound produced was likely to have been very similar to the sound of a Tromba Marina, in this case a one-stringed musical instrument, now lost.
This instrument has been specially built by the Spanish lute maker Maestro Marino Gutierrez García to Oreobambos specifications. It houses 48 sympathetic strings and is more than two metres tall. Track 4 of the first disc, The Parasaurolophus Walkeri is in Love, is a tromba marina solo performed by Oreobambo.
Album 2 - Track 3
On track 3 of the second disc Volcanoes and Islands, you can listen to the sound of a wooden Aeolian Harp, an instrument played by the wind which was widely used until the 19th century.
The harp was built by the American lute maker Maestro Robert Corrigan. This evocative track was recorded on the volcanoes of the Aeolian Islands, homeland of the God of the Winds.
Album 2 - Track 4
Trombe Marine (waterspouts, tornadoes) from the second Album, is a depiction of these natural events.
For the first time ever, three legendary Fazioli 308 Grand Pianos are played and recorded together. The recording took place at Fazioli Concert Hall in Sacile.
Album 3 - Track 3
On track 3 of the third disk, Jumping into the Giant B Flat Black Hole, the Infinita Conscia Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Oreobambo, performs a representation of the black hole located at the centre of Perseus A galaxy, part of the Perseus Galaxy Cluster. This black hole emits a continuous frequency in the key of B flat which is so strong that it reaches us on Earth 250 million light years away.
This sound is usually outside our threshold of perception because it is a very low register 57 octaves below middle C on the piano keyboard. Yet it pervades us all and some people can even describe it.
You can listen to hints of the little tromba marina, an instrument that completely disappeared except for a depiction of it in a painting by Hans Memling in 1480. From this painting Maestro Marco Salerno was able to recreate the two-stringed tromba marina piccola used in this recording.
The sound of the drones of the Great Highland Bagpipe, masterfully built from mammoth ivory tusks by Maestro Tim Gellaitry and traditionally tuned in the key of B flat brings the whole work to a close.
During Energy Journeys' mastering, a new experimental analog sound process designed by Oreobambo, that we called ColourfulTone®Mastering, was used for the first time. Thanks to this, the sound has acquired a particular and unique bright, polished, natural and tri-dimensional quality.
