I got my bank statement Thursday. This did not stop me from spending undisclosed amounts of money on myself today. The less expensive purchase was a CD by the Burnt Earth Ensemble, which is an instrumental, fusion-type group (Celtic, African, Middle Eastern, and jazz) that plays solely on clay instruments made by one of their members, Barry Hall. It's worth looking at the site, or the liner notes of my CD, to see the instruments. They have: globular horns, flowerpotophones, didjibodrans and -- my favorite -- conundrums. The instruments that I don't suspect were invented wholesale are also cool to see.
