I wrote this song for my band Storm Seeker in 2015, together with my very talented drummer Marius Bornfleth. When I lived in Scotland in 2016, the producer Nassif Younes and I decided to re-record the song as a hurdy gurdy version. Here's the result! I hope you enjoy it.

This instrument is called "hurdy gurdy" and has its roots in the medieval times. It works like a mechanical violin with a wheel bow, that can play bass, melody and rhythm all at once. This song is recorded using ONLY the hurdy gurdy.

▶ Non Resonating Hurdy-gurdy | Neil Brook


Non Resonating Hurdy-gurdy introduction - YouTube
Published on Mar 19, 2017 by Neil Brook
An introduction to my new concept hurdy-gurdy which is designed to minimise the acoustic sound so better to hear the effect of the multiple pickups.

Now it's connected to fx units and an amplifier, the NRG can do whatever the player wants. It's not really what I do but shows some possibilities . Gregory Jolivet would have better ideas I'm sure !!

https://pattygurdy.bandcamp.com
My music is now available on Bandcamp!
That means: you can download it for free or pay what you want, if you want to support my team and me.
I am more than happy to receive messages telling me that people WANT to give me money for listening to my music. Thank you!
Many of you didn't know this. In fact, a lot of people think I make music for a living. But the truth is:
I am a student.
The team I work with (producer, film maker...) consists of students.
We do this, because we want to get better at what we love.
And we are more than happy to hear that people WANT to pay for our work. And even if it's only 5€, we will proudly get an ice cream for that! :D
Rock on!
