 The collaboration between Anderson and the composer Jonny Greenwood (above), who scored “There Will Be Blood” and also plays guitar in Radiohead, is among the strongest creative alliances in contemporary Hollywood, and the Wordless Music Series will mark the achievement by presenting two screenings of the film at the United Palace Theatre, with Greenwood participating in live performances of his score (Sept. 19-20).—Alex Ross

I’m going to see him next weekend for both shows. SO EXCITED!

Building Your Own Palme Diffuseur (Updated)

Jonny’s Palme (stringreunited).

Introduction

The Ondes Martenot (or at least Ondes Musicales) is an instrument unique due to its control mechanisms and waveforms. As one might hope, its diffuseurs, or speakers, live up to the uniqueness of the instrument and bring further distinction to the instrument. There are four main types of diffuseur - Principal (standard loudspeaker), Résonance (springs suspended in front of speaker), Metallique (gong used as speaker cone), and Palme (suspended strings allow for sympathetic resonances). This article will discuss how to reproduce the sounds of the Palme, and briefly also the Résonance.

The Palme gets its name from its distinctive shape, which is similar to a palm leaf. The leaf shaped part is actually a resonating space, much like the body of an acoustic guitar, in front of which strings are suspended. It features a total of 24 strings, 12 on each side of the diffuseur. Each set of twelve is generally tuned to a full chromatic scale, ascending by semitone from left to right, though some pieces call for alternate tunings. The back strings may be tuned an octave above the front ones (I’m not quite sure). The Palme speaker was not only used by Jonny in conjunction with his Ondes Martenot, but also on Thom’s vocals on You And Whose Army.

The first thing to ask is how much do you want an authentic Palme?
