MULTI-DIMENSIONAL MUSIC…

A CREATION OF AMERICAN ARTIST DAVID KETTLEWELL AND ITALIAN COMPOSER ANDREA ANTONELLO NACCI

Multi-Dimensional music is a new art form created by Kettlewell-Nacci, which involves “layering” of modified electronically altered music with improvisation by Kettlewell.

Those modifications take many forms, and the creative team are exploring the art form, and defining it’s parameters.

It is their plan that their European and Asian performance tour will feature this new improvisational work…Story on improvised music, improvised solo by Kettlewell on Nacci’s improvisation, Multi-Dimensional music, and improvised dance.

This example SLEEPBACK #3 is Nacci’s original SLEEP played in reverse, with improvisation by Kettlewell. While not strictly Multi-Dimensional, it is one of their first involving manipulation of standard linear music. From these early forms, Multi-Dimensional music was created.

This particular piece of music has been widely accepted and complimented in this new genre.

Kettlewell says improvising on these pieces opens doors to new ways of sensing music.

“Harmonica looks to non-experts like a simple, primitive, old instrument. We have needed something on the web showing people what chromatic harmonica really is and it’s musical value.Mastersofharmonica.com is the best website I know of for harmonica lovers. It has a beautiful new look and is a perfect starting point for people who want to know about the chromatic harmonica. I  like the blogs and that people can share their thoughts on, and love of music on the Facebook page. I appreciate the tutorial sections personally, they are very complete and well done.”
