I'm exploring new sounds and textures for an upcoming project of sansula music. There's something about these dirty tones that I really like.

The sansula is the only instrument I can pick up and music just seems to pour out. For this improvisation I used a delay and the wah wah effect on my little guitar amp. Whenever I listen back to a piece like this, I have to laugh. I have no idea what I did, and I could never play it again, yet there it is.

It's the first day of spring and I have a new release available! to an unknown god is a long accidental sanza piece I have wanted to make for some time. It is only available as a limited edition mini cdr, pictured above. To hear an excerpt and read about the project go here: http://www.ricktarquinio.bandcamp.com/ All proceeds from the album will be donated to relief funds to help victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Thanks for your support.

These patterns left in the grass by the tide are the sort of thing that inspires the music I make. The following accidental sanza piece was created quickly and without intention in the studio and I think comes close to the way nature operates. You can download it for free if you'd like
