Plink, plank, plunk!


With the pizzicato piece Plink, Plank, Plunk! (1954), Anderson demonstrates his remarkable use of original effects by complementing the plucked strings with other sounds created by the string players rubbing the palms of their hands across the faces of their instruments.

dans la pièce en pizzicato Plink, Plank, Plunk! (1954), Anderson démontre son extraordinaire capacité à user d’effets originaux, telle l’adjonction aux cordes en pizzicato d’autres sonorités créées par les contrebassistes frottant leurs paumes contre les faces de leurs instruments.

In Pizzicato-Stück Plink, Plank, Plunk! (1954) demonstriert Anderson seinen ungewöhnlichen Einsatz von originellen Effekten, indem er die gezupften Saiteninstrumente mit anderen, von den Kontrabaßspielern durch Reiben der Handflächen über den Resonanzboden ihrer Instrumente produzierten Klängen vervollständigt.
