about

With the exception of some Minimoog on the first track, this album was recorded using only the relatively little known Baldwin Electric Harpsichord (model CW-9-S). the unique capabilities of which I discovered in July 2021 at the Electronic Music Education And Preservation Project (www.EMEAPP.org), and where I promptly proceeded to record this album in a week or so. This amazing sounding instrument has a damper pedal and some tone selection switches (separate options for the bass and treble), and can sound like a synthesizer, a brass section, a guitar or plucked harp, a marimba, and of course, a harpsichord. Such a joy to play!
