"Volatile", An amplified instrument; 6 inches in diameter, 4 feet long, built from a titanium tube; blasts fireballs out of each end while being played. The tube has two propane feeds. One is a pilot/drone source, the other, controlled by a foot pedal, determines the amount of flame projected outside of the instrument. The tube has 4 amplified springs and five piano wires. The instrument is bowed, drummed upon, and resonated with Carbon-ice, in a duet between the sonic output from the extremes of physicality, cold and heat, and the audio/visual of the amorphous cloud of flame surrounding the performer in direct elemental contact.
Created in 1998 and performed both solo and with F-Space throughout Europe, Japan and The United States.
