These studies and your other samples are really helpful to me, Lowboy, in relation to your explanations of what you are doing, and also in terms of developing a better understanding of the capabilities of the instrument.
These studies are great, and I would love to reference them in my research masters focusing on melodica techniques. Also I would like to send you a questionnaire which would take about 10 mins to complete if thats OK with you? It is about various aspects of the melodica and I will use them in my final thesis which will be published next year.
Unfortunately Dropbox intentionally decided to break all the millions of hyperlinks for all of their millions of customers as part of a service change. To say the least, I and many others are in the process of pulling our services at Dropbox.
In reference to the files, let me see if I can find them. In the meantime, you can search for me on Soundcloud.com and hear similar studies. Go to SoundCloud.com and search on “Lowboy Bootay.” That should bring you to list of a number of recordings and experimental studies.
Several weeks ago, I actually promised to update these studies because my techniques and recording capability have improved considerably in the last two and half years. Give me a bit more time and I will post some new recordings. In the meantime, the SoundCloud recordings offer lots to think about.
