Until you’ve seen it performed live, the music of Chapman Stick player Tom Griesgraber sounds too big to be real. There are acoustic guitar or piano-like moments, funk rock bass lines, ambient synth and soundscape textures, rock guitar leads, jazz solos and even small bits of percussion sometimes all happening simultaneously. To the uninitiated listener it sounds like an ensemble, but to those who have seem him live, it is the magic of a unique virtuoso.
"Tom's performances were truly amazing and touched everyone in attendance. His talent, professionalism and grace is in a class of its own." -Neil Portnow, President of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, Inc. (The Grammy's)
A Chapman Stick is a rare instrument that resembles a Sitar or Japanese Koto, and has a distinctive sound. Looking similar to a wide version of the fretboard of an electric guitar, but with 8, 10 or 12 strings, but considerably longer and wider than a guitar fretboard. Unlike the electric guitar, it is usually played by tapping or fretting the strings, rather than plucking them. Instead of one hand fretting and the other hand plucking, both hands sound notes by striking the strings against the fingerboard just behind the appropriate frets for the desired notes.
For this reason, it can sound many more notes at once than some other stringed instruments, making it more comparable to a keyboard instrument than to other stringed instruments. This arrangement lends itself to playing many lines at once and many Stick players have mastered performing bass, chords and melody lines simultaneously.
Tom Griesgraber is one of the world’s most respected and active performers on The Stick. The chance to hear a Chapman stick played is rare, and the opportunity to experience a master of the art is extremely rare. On Saturday March 9th Cellarz93 brings you the opportunity to hear a bounty of inventive interactive sounds played by one of the world’s most respected and active performers on The Stick.
Once you listen you'll be hooked! Don't miss this one!
