Udderbot sextet no. 1

Udderbot sextet no. 1 “Three Shavings off the Infinite Block of Goodness” was written in 2005, when the udderbot hadn’t been christened yet and was called a “slide bottle”. In a didactic fashion, each movement takes a different approach to mediating between, on the one hand, the difficulties of learning this instrument for the first time and, on the other hand, the ease of composing for this instrument for the first time.

A final edition of the score is available here; instructions on making your own udderbot are available at http://udderbot.wikispaces.com. A video is coming soon, we all hope.
