About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

Since about 2000, Roderick O. Pischl (self-taught producer of stringed instruments, musician and sound energizers) is fascinated by homemade musical instruments that were initially even simple wooden boxes for wine and handles of axes. Today, however, he builds quality music instruments, mainly in the

     

  1. monochord, and

  2. KoTaMo

  3. Bodytambura count, but also

  4. fantastic guitar rarities.

  5.  


The craft he learned to self-taught ways of "learning by doing" is his motto.

And so it is that Roderick in his small but well equipped studio in Telfs / Tyrol unique creations produced guitar.

He emphasizes the fact that almost everything is hand made by himself, even the tuners and the bridges. That he only uses selected materials, you need not actually perform, Mittenwald is indeed just a jump. Minor repairs can be make in his workshop.


Together with Andrea Pühringer and also alone he organizes guided sound travels, in which both his self-built instruments and other instruments such as gongs overtones, singing bowls, cymbals, Koshi, Shruti, didgeridoo but also overtone singing are used.


Roderick also is busy in the research and development of new instruments. Finally, it should mention that he also offers crafting-workshops for monochord, BodyTAMpure© and KoTaMo and also crafting-workshops for children for various instruments (can-guitar / banjo, drum, flute, etc).



* Since 2007, activity with artistic instrument building. Pointing the way in the confrontation with the instrument building for me was the first encounter with the monochord and the Körpertambura, initiated by Christian Koch, from whom I have learned a lot



* from 2009 Management of workshops for amateur musicians and further and continuing education seminars



* since 2010. atelier "Dubious instruments" with a focus on: construction and development of unusual stringed instruments for musical improvisation, therapy and self-experience



* from 2013 intensive soundhealing energetic work



Main driving force of my work is the fascination for monochrome sounds and the joy of creative activity, experimental use of forms and  the sensual material wood - conscious of traditions of artisanal instrument making. New developments of instruments and sound objects and the artistic and creative work on it are for me the most exciting challenges.
