A psaltery is an historic type of zither, often played with a bow. Jeph Jerman does not explain his sources,but it is likely that he's using an eBow on a psaltery as he did with his previous work 43Õ41 for Chris Reider. The recordings were made using analog cassette, micro-cassette and 4-track digital recorders, creating a series of rich drones with overtones and dissonance creating entrancing works of sound. Recording errata accent the works, giving each piece an organic and live feeling to it. Beautiful.
