    All Music Guide Review

    A beautifully illustrated and fascinating book with CD (or vice-versa) presenting the imaginative inventions of 37 among several hundred homemade musical instrument builders/performers in new music around the world. The spectrum of inspirations is wide: complex, sophisticated electronic creations like Don Buchla's "Thunder" and "Lightning" devices to the bamboo saxophone of Jamaican "mento" musician Sugar Belly (William Walker), the Futurist noise orchestras of Luigi Russolo at the beginning of the century to Fred "Spaceman" Longs' junk metal sculptures. The CD has generous excerpts of the work of 18 of these creators, most of whom are composer-builder-performers. ~ "Blue" Gene Tyranny, Rovi
