 Görkem Şen - The Yaybahar - new musical instrument

Görkem Şen - The Yaybahar - new musical instrument

Every so often a new instrument is announced, often a hybrid cobbled together from parts or, an electronic "trigger, which simply activates preselected sounds and sequences, they almost always fail to excite. The Yaybahar is exceptional principally as both the origin and the sole means of expressive control over the sound. Görkem Şen clearly has near virtuosic command of his creation and the sound pallet and expressive range are quite glorious. It feels like an instrument which has a history, an established repertoire. Hard then to imagine it has been both created and mastered by one individual. As an achievement in true multi sensory engagement this is pretty hard to beat. The Sound Cloud recordings attached to the link are just beautiful.
