Posted on 9 January, by Nick Bullock Tides, my second book is due to be published by Vertebrate Publishing and on the shelves in May. The cover is an ink by Tessa Lyons which I think is wonderful. Tessa did such a great job, as everyone at Vertebrate Publishing have done and who are, of course, still doing. My initial draft was words, the final draft is approximately 95 words which means there are a load of prose not included.

So on a run-up to Tides being published, I thought I publish some out-takes here as a bit of a teaser. This number 1 is a mish-mash of an essay I wrote that was first published in the CC journal and some of it was also published in Echoes. A moving modern art painting passes in front of my face.

Posted 15 April Notes on the Beginnings of Concertina Playing in Ireland, — by Dan Worrall Although the Irish are known for their long folk memory, the story of how of concertina playing began there has been largely lost; it is often tagged to a threadbare tale of mariners bringing them up the Shannon estuary to Clare.

This paper reconstructs its history by using period accounts from newspapers, books and family histories to document the social gatherings where it was played, and the vendors who sold it. The Anglo-German concertina was enormously popular all across Ireland during its heyday, amongst people of nearly all social and economic groups. Its later concentration in Clare was not a result of how it arrived, but of local cultural and economic factors that aided its barest survival there while it was completely dropped—and all but forgotten—elsewhere in the country.

Breathing Colour is an installation-based show that takes a deeper look at the way colour behaves, exploring shapes, materials, shadows and reflections. How does the light during the day influence the colours and materials? What is the relationship between form and colour? When does a colour lift up a shape and give it a new dimension? What is the role of shadow? All elemental aspects of design. The ultimate aim is to pit the power of colour against the power of form. In my work I think about how coloured objects affect other objects and how all the objects behave in a certain setting.

How important is size or volume for a colour and how do coloured objects influence one another? The different materials have an impact on each other and certain colours can accentuate horizontal shapes, while others are better for vertical forms.

Anglo Concertina Buyer’s Guide Lachenal In a competitive concertina-manufacturing and selling environment, the Lachenal company produced a range of very fine instruments, including many “student” models. Anglo Lachenals are, as far as I know, all considered “student” grade. They’re good instruments with “real” steel or brass concertina reeds and construction, but the action and sound won’t be as nice or as consistent as some other makes mentioned below.

These instruments were all made in the UK, so “vintage English” usually refers to a Lachenal, Wheatstone, Jeffries or Crabb, and implies superior compared to the Italian Stagis quality of construction, sound, and playability action. If you can afford it, one of these vintage concertinas will be a fine instrument on which to learn, and frankly, you might never need to purchase another instrument as long as you live. They had a metal-ended model available for a little more, but since I was already a bit over my budget, I got the wooden-end model.

Some people say the wooden-ended models have a mellower sound and so are better for accompaniment if you plan on singing at the same time, but I think this is a very general rule, and probably varies a lot from instrument to instrument. The type of reeds and layout of the reedpan also affects sound quality considerably see the note below by Rich Morse of The Button Box for more details.

Try to get a button though, as a button would be very limiting musically, as you would have only the C and G rows, and no accidentals besides the F of the G scale.

A Brief History of the Anglo Concertina in the United States by Dan Worrall In the United States the Anglo-German concertina was very popular during the middle and late nineteenth century, but by the early twentieth century it had all but vanished from American popular culture, becoming only a Hollywood symbol of “the old days”.

Introduction Rather than provide a comprehensive history of the area or its discovery and exploration by the west, the main purpose of this section is to provide an overview that ties together my books and reading on these topics. It is as much for my own benefit as for any third party reader. It is a guide which is hopefully easier to navigate than a list of book titles. If you want to go deeper into the history of exporation in China and Tibet, then I highly recommend the complementary pages of Matthias Claus on “Reisen und Abenteuer in China und Tibet.

One page is a comprehensive annotated chronology of exploration of China and Tibet from – , and the other covers the same material, but is organized alphabetically, by person. These pages are in German. I also highly recommend spending time on the web site of the British Library. See for example the Aid for Researchers page and associated links on Afghanistan: Since the topic is so broad, it is difficult to recommend any single book that covers the literature or the scope of my interests.

One notable exception, however, is Cameron’s volume, produced in association with the Royal Geographical Society: Mountains of the Gods: The Himalaya and the Mountains of Central Asia. If you only buy one book to cover what follows and it is affordable , this might be it.
