FROM SCRATCH instruments are sound and sign, signals to ear and eye. The tonal vocabulary has evolved from random-pitched to finely-tuned, just, harmonic and micro\'. Central to this development have been the tuned percussion stations, rack-supported, four-tier combinations of PVC pipes, tuned-tongue bells, roto-tom drums, and tuned tongue bamboos, along with some quirky and original methods of playing. First four and later three of these stations, along with various other original struck and spun acoustic instruments, made up the FROM SCRATCH sound that gained it international recognition. FROM SCRATCH contains instruments like Zitherum long stringed instruments (drummed and bowed), the metal pronged Nundrum, the stroked RodBaschet, Gong tree, Foley-trays, WaterCooler–Drumkit, Water-bells & kitchen sink. . . and more recently the Gloopdrum family, spring-gongs, ostifans.
