Talugung


Talugung is the alias of Canadian musician Ryan Waldron, who makes his own instruments and clearly listens to a lot of African and Asian traditional music (his alias is borrowed from a language spoken on the Batanes Islands of the Philippines). He plays a kind of imagined world music, tapping into a fictional musical tradition that doesn't strictly exist, but amalgamates from different sources. The vexed ethics of Sun City Girls' use of field recordings made in Southeast Asian marketplaces immediately come to mind Read more on Last.fm
Talugung is the alias of Canadian musician Ryan Waldron, who makes his own instruments and clearly listens to a lot of African and Asian traditional music (his alias is borrowed from a language spoken on the Batanes Islands of the Philippines). He plays a kind of imagined world music, tapping into a fictional musical tradition that doesn't strictly exist, but amalgamates from different sources. The vexed ethics of Sun City Girls' use of field recordings made in Southeast Asian marketplaces immediately come to mind, but Talugung is closer in spirit to Jon Hassell's Fourth World projects, or the invented parallel worlds of Jorge Luis Borges - there is less in the way of theft and more of tribute. Like Harry Partch, Waldron allows his work to be shaped according to the peculiarities of his homemade instruments. Tracks like 'Wobble Crackle' and 'Arrows' are junkyard jumbles of likembe-like sounds.

'Vliuug' is all rubbery, papery bass strings, challenging you to visualise exactly what kind of instrument Waldron has built. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
