In The Sea Of Key: Is a solo track of The Kestrel 920 from Seven Transharmonic Explorations In Multitonal Omnivibrationalism: Volume Six.

 See DISCS for more details on the release.

The Kestrel 920, is a sound transmogrifer designed and calibrated by Glenn Weyant to amplify and exploit the nano and overt vibrations created through percussive blows, bowing, electromagnetic fields and assorted manipulation.

At the heart of Kestrel 920 is a segment of found lumber that has been hollowed to create a resonation chamber for the mounting of a contact microphone.

The lumber has been strategically mounted with found objects mostly including: a tuned dust pan, a deconstructed satellite dish mount, assorted screws, nails, bungee cords, wires and springs.

The vibrations and subsequent tones created by the manipulation of these objects passes into/and is translated by the grain of the lumber where it is captured by the contact microphone, boosted, processed and eventually broadcast.
