Sorry, "6 bases having to of the ....", should have read, "6 bases having TWO of the ....."

Ironic, the opposition to the G Pan. Ironic because some pan players need to move their mind from the arbitrary nature of the layout of some of the pans (like the double tenor) to the logic of 2 pans having whole tone scale, 3 pan having diminished chords, 4 pans having augmented chords and 6 bases having to of the 12 notes (with an octave). Then, they have to make another logical jump to diving the cycle of 5/4 into 3 for the 3 G-pan. The only thing that will save them mentally, is when they try to divide the cycle of 5/4 into two for a 2 pan, they will smile at the presence of a semitone in each of the pan and praise the step-up they have made from arbitrary layout to the logic of music, which a circular instrument like the pan must celebrate. Thanks for the foresight and the logic that music dictates. Dr. Lester CN Simon

PHI co-inventor Earle Phillip has passed away

Posted on September 8, 2014 at 1:19am 1 Comment

It is with great regret that I announce the death of Earle Phillip, PHI co-inventor and early pioneer of the gospelypso music genre. Earle was not widely known on the steelpan circuit but his love for music and for the instrument knew no bound.



Here's to you Earle. Thanks for the guidance, teaching and motivation. We will fight on to ensure that your dream becomes a reality. May the God, in whom you so fervently believed, give your spirit peace.

Didn't realise that Ministry of Culture posted these ... this is my favourite NSSO performance - Waltz for Iris composed by Ray Holman. I think this was recorded at Naparima Bowl in 2008. Waltz for Iris
