Making Sound Art In The Shower with mikewindy
Using the retractable clothes hanging line in the shower at a hotel in Orlando Florida to create a diddley bow.
Any Hotel/Motel Shower
Using Audacity as a recording device, a small amplifier, and a contact microphone I stretched and tightened the retractable clothesline in a shower stall to create enough tension to "play" the shower as a Diddley Bow. I made it because I couldn't get the though out of my head once I had it. It only took a few minutes though I have been building stringed instruments for years.
