Rammel, Hal

Rammel, Hal: Agog (Penumbra)
Label: Penumbra    
Released in: USA    

"Agog is Hal Rammel's third collection of solo works for amplified palette, an instrument he first designed and built in 1992. All seventeen percussion pieces on this collection were recorded in realtime, without overdubs or processing, using set-ups of multiple palettes arranged as a tabletop instrument and played with a wide variety of homemade mallets. Each palette has its own unique arrangement of vertical metal and wooden rods producing a rich resonant space that varies dramatically within the selections on this new recording."-Penumbra Music
