the practice chanter

I made a wee recording yesterday featuring the humble practice chanter and a bit of ableton, having always liked it's sound, it's not often performed upon publicly but various people have of course used it, by now, on recordings.  One of my favourite examples was on an album by the late Hector Zazou, featuring the singing of Cathie Ann MacPhee. It was the sax/clarinet player who played the chanter I recall, a French chap...interesting. Jim Sutherland recently got me to dig mine out for a bit of recording, so thanks Jim!

Anyway, here's my track, 'The Chanter' , hope you enjoy.

please share with any Bagpipe interested friends, if you think they're hard enough, thanks!  

you can download the song for a mere 25 pence on bandcamp, hurry while stocks last.
