Rubbertellie in Action!

Having heard Jon’s Rubbertellie on Dedications: Faces and Places, his CD with Bill Frisell, folks are always curious about what the Rubbertellie actually is! What does it look like? Well there is a YouTube link that shows Rubbetellie in action with Jon playing Brother Sharpe, a cut from the Dedications CD. The concert performance was at Bishop’s University in Quebec, Canada.

Here is the link:   Jon Damian at The Guitar concert 2006

    Fantastic! The idea of prepared guitar always intrigues me! The electric guitar is just one instrument; but with a million other instruments hiding inside.

    Its fantastic to see the different applications and personal techniques that can be idiosyncratically developed with pursuing that first little *spark* of creativity!

    We’ve only begun to explore what is possible with music!

    I am happy that you are enjoying my instrument, the Rubbertellie. I was recently a guest in Australia where I produced 12 “Rubbertellie Murals.” The Rubbertellie is a creative world unto itself.

    I am available to do Creative Workshops/Performances on Guitar and Rubbertellie and for musicians of all persuasions and instruments.

    Contact me if you wish.
