Ben Browton found this basic thumb piano in the basement of the Hastings Trust. He lovingly restored the keys of the instrument, and added the wooden sides.
The sound recording TOXIC KaLiMBaH ‘Refrain’ (2011) features this neglected instrument played by Ben Browton. The recording also features a selection of domestic items such as a wok and a whisk, and a treasured vecchio “Francesco Perretti & Figli” Neopolitan parlour guitar.
This work will be shown along with ancillaries as TOXIC Trinity (2013) in St Barnabas Church in Bexhill as part of ‘Navigate’ Bexhill Art Trail. Supported by De La Warr Pavilion and Coastal Currents 2013. Bless. See also Dervish say;
