On behalf of Dr. Anton Armstrong and the St. Olaf Choir, I am searching for Tibetan-type bowls/singing bowls for Esenvalds’ “Stars”. We need pitches D, E, and A, as outlined by the piece. If possible, we need this before next Friday (1/20/17). We can reimburse for shipping costs.
You should be able to go to a Buddhist shop and get them… To manipulate pitch, you can put tape inside the bowl.
Hi Devon, this is Robin, Eriks manager at Edition Peters Artist Management in London. Eriks has asked me to say that actually the bowls are not necessary for a successful performance of Stars! You can do it with only the water-tuned glasses. Brady Allred has used bowls and put it on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ND1IUPHD-TY and if you like you could always reach out to him. All the best!
