Seven large, pure quartz crystal, 'singing bowls' form the foundation for this recording. They were played and processed in a variety of ways from slapping, rubbing and bowing, to striking with rubber mallets. In some spots they were filtered and processed beyond recognition using various DJ and guitar boxes and digital processors. Each original composition features the tones and overtones of these bowls combined with an eclectic mix of sometimes humorous, sometimes sensual, acoustic performances on a variety of instruments including guitar, flugel horn, saxes; even a toy piano to name a few. 7 Rooms is Tony Humecke, and friends: Tony Humecke- crystal bowls, percussion, drums, keyboards, guitar, bass, samples, loops John Leftwich - acoustic bass Rory Anton - guitars Chip Smith - saxes Bill Morosi - piano solo & wurlitzer Jeff Bunnel - trumpet & flugel horn James Rutlidge - electric bass (Dear George) Virginia Kron - cello Kurt Wortman - dumbec solo (Solar Crossing) Bill Robe - ride cymbal & triangle Many of the loops used are Tonys own creations from PERCUSSIVE ADVENTURES 2, an award winning multi-volume library, created by Tony Humecke and Kurt Wortman available from EastWest Communications.
