Love is in the wind (controller)
Wellsboro Home Page had a special guest in our studio this week and he brought and played an instrument that many of us have never seen nor heard! It is called a wind controller which is a wind instrument capable of controlling one or more music synthesizers or other devices. It has also been referred to as a “wind synth”, or “wind synthesizer.” Wind controllers draw on the same techniques used such as the recorder or a tin whistle. Some forms of the wind controller use electronic sensors to convert fingering, breath pressure and bite pressure into control signals. it must be connected to a sound generating device such as a MIDI or analog synthesizer which is connected to an amplifier.
Bob Vaughan was kind enough to give Home Page a great demonstration on how the wind controller can emulate so many different sounds and instruments
There will be a Valentine’s Day dinner concert hosted by Living Word Fellowship on February 14th at 6p.m. where he will once again be playing the “wind synth.” It will be an intimate buffet dinner experience complete with soft romantic lighting and music from 6 p.m.- 8 p.m. The dinner menu will be a choice of Beef Burgundy and Chicken in White Wine. There will be a live music performance and video production of “The Outrageous Beauty of Nature” starting at 7 p.m. He will be accompanied by fellow musician, David Knauss. David received his Ph.D in music from Penn State University. The cost is $15 per couple. For all interested in attending you must R.S.V.P. by February 5th.
