19 edo Hex Fuzz Demonstration

Saturday, September 10th, 2016

One Happy Spider (who caught a cicada) is an extended 19 edo guitar improvisation presented in 2 formats for you to compare.

This version is with a “hex fuzz” – distortion added to each string separately which eliminates the cross-string modulation artifacts that occurs when using a conventional guitar pickup and pedal. This was accomplished by using a GK-3 hex pickup on my 19 edo guitar and running it through my Boss GP-10 which has a “poly” (read hex) distortion setting.


This version includes the normal pickup signal run through Guitar Rig in parallel with the hex fuzz version. This is probably the version you want to download if you only want one and are not interested in the comparison.

(there is time but it seems gone)

the obvious signs
of the seasonal change
i could name them all
or simply let the new winds
wrap around me in the last light
of the day this day
this near to the end
notched again upon my mind
there is time but it seems gone
slipped like sands
uncountable through fingers
i must find the center
return to a peaceful balance
too long on the edge
dare i dream of contented time
feeling free to let go
i could catch my breath
i could hold it again
finally able to say
hewre is peace

(my limbs sleep numb )
i dreamt
i woke in verdant fields
emerald lay
on this pleasant land
so surprised to see
all about me jade
clumped bursting forth
my limbs sleep numb
trying to stretch them out
my fingers found a leafy mound
warm to touch
and hid beneath
a secret fruit
it i but stirred
i could sense the sweet
allure of a hidden pleasure
but my limbs seized
by some frightful cold
i could not help but swoon
in to dark depths
pull me from my rest
wake me my dear
the sleepy turquoise
to your emerald Verdigris
