8 pm group discussion on instrument inventing practice and music for the Tempest with Bart Hopkin, Krys Bobrowski, Stephen Parris, Peter Whitehead, Brenda Hutchinson, Sudhu Tewari and David Samas.

The Harmonic Series Gamelan is a special project of Pet the Tiger Instrument Inventors Collective, directed by David Samas. Inspired by a Harrison/Colvig instrument which was used for constructing just tunings, the HSG is a collection of over 30 instruments created by 17 inventors, all tuned to the Schumann Cavity Resonance as a fundamental. The ensemble performs songs and incidental music including exotic textures, whimsical pairings and tightly composed harmonic music.
