Mad World - Omnichord version (cover)

Omni Owners Gallery

On my old website I had a Omnichord Owners Gallery. This website is long gone & sadly, a lot of the photo's got lost due to a computer crash. I found a couple today, so I decided to start a new Omnichord Owner page here. Send me your best shot of you and your omnichord if you want to be in it!  here's a lovely one from Kim Wayman, singer songwriter extraordinaire from NY  www.kimwayman.com


portachord for sale

Found this one: for sale portachord! I don't know why it's still there, it can't be because of the asking price...


The Omnichord Album part 1

I've been thinking about making an omnichord album for a long time, ever since I heard 'Scream if you want to go faster' by the High Fidelity. They  produced the 'Omnichord Album' in 2000. Their founder/singer Sean Dickson (ex-Soup Dragons) wrote 11 songs starring the Omnichord in the leading role.I just picked up a copy locally through a 2nd hand site today.

I found this reaction Sean Dickson* wrote somewhere:
"This was a concept dreamt up by myself and John Peel after buying him an Omnichord for his 60th birthday . It still is one of my proudest achievements and every track sums up 5 beautiful years spent with Adrian , Ross and Paul . Hopefully one day people will realise how this album and Demonstration by The High Fidelity were completely out on their own and likely 10 years ahead of themselves . A second Omnichord album is in the making after a strange last 10 years but years a person would have to take to reach this point of being proud of this band"  

Mmmm, interesting read, I'm looking forward to hearing this album!
* Sean Dickson currently works as a DJ under the name Hifi Sean
