Three Diamond Ohms is a collection of original compositions made for a vintage CRB transistor organ from the 70s. The lure emanating from this big, old and somewhat obsolete instrument inspired arcane sound combinations, in the tradition of the experimental 70s (Wendy Carlos, Progressive Rock), but also with references to the big names of organ history (Olivier Messiaen, for example).
Though the pieces have multi tracked parts, the score is ideally playable live by two organists. Every sound comes from the organ, which has also piano presets, and a nice spring reverb. Most imperfections are left uncorrected, since the limits of the instruments are definitely a central feature: for the composer, for the player, and for the listener.
- Bob Meanza – ‘Three Diamond Ohms’
“Posted skins descended to conflict shunted, as tiny fractured tears. Cavity pleasing the affect of battled scars occupied the resistance, illustrations of a pigeon propaganda, admitted refined global peace pottery, same as cigarettes working their way through gaps of policies. Tryingly disheveled fisherman pantheon, postures and shape as charisma for fierce, benefit associations keeping life living to the full!”
