Same Sound - But DifferentSame Sound - But Different Ref: A0104
Rüdiger Oppermann
Born in 1954 Rüdiger is Germany´s foremost celtic harp player. He began playing the harp in 1973 and has since virtuosically surpassed all existing standards on this instrument. His High-Headed Irish Harp or Clairséach is strung with 38 gold-plated bronze strings. With an elaborately carved column and unique mechanism on each string for the use of bending notes (as in the blues), Rüdiger has constructed an absolutely personal instrument. The technical capabilities of this harp combined with Rüdiger’s improvisational free-style have transformed the Celtic Harp into a melodic instrument full of expression and power.

Sheet Music

ZemioZemio Ref: RO001
Rüdiger Oppermann
ZEMIO is based on Central-African Harp Music. This music has a different character than western music. First of all, change the sound of the harp by weaving a strip of paper between the strings. This strip should be 1-2 inches (3-6cm) wide, and long enough to reach all the strings played. The strings will then produce a short, buzzing, percussive sound. When pulling out the strip (beginning at bar17), precede slowly to produce a constant, gradual sound change, especially towards the end of the passage, when only 1 or 2 strings buzz. With the typical "african" position of the hands, operating in the same octave from both sides, a specific african feeling for the polyrhythmical structures of this piece will be created, building inherant melodies, hidden underneath the two structures.
