(Oscars) WTF was that?!
    #2390360 - 03/01/04 08:44 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

So, I happened to have the Oscars on last night while running some financial numbers and happened to see somebody (Sting?) playing some instrument during a performance that I have never seen in my life. If you were watching then you know of what I am speaking. It's tough to describe but it looked similar to a small guitar with no strings, fretboard, or headstock. Apparently the instrument is played by turning a crank at the ass end. The sound was reminiscent of a theremin but the pitch remained steady and was considerably lower than a theremin. The sound oscillation wasn't nearly as fast any theremin i've heard. I couldn't see an actual crank so it is quite possible he was just moving his hand in free air just like a theremin. He definitely moved his hand at the same cadence throughout.

Anybody know what the hell that thing was?

i think that's it.

so this thing is a stringed instrument.

seems i've heard of this instrument but never seen one.

i googled hurdy oscar and found this blog entry. she seems certain that it was a hurdy gurdy and that, yes, it was Sting.

imma go study this instrument.

thanx!

John Stuart from the Daily Show called it a Hurdy Gurdy.
