The Fractal Harp is a 24 string instrument that features a central pivoting slide providing its player access to innumerable musical possibilities.The slide travels through 27 chromatic fixed increments offering over two octaves of notes for each position. These notes are laid as a pentatonic harp but can be addressed in limitless ways as an electric/acoustic guitar. The instrument also has a group of strings that function as a rudimentary pedal steel guitar.
The players right hand controls the pitch while picking, plucking and effecting modulation. Single or two-handed play allow for the simultaneous manipulation of other instruments and effects. Lush harmonic clusters and intervals occur at various positions when the strings are sounded to the right of the slide producing two harmonizing notes from each string. The simplicity of its design is remarkable when weighed with the range of expression possible with this elegant instrument.
