Macondo Horns: biography.

Since the Macondo Horns were bult the selected few who had opportunity to listen them we able to “get” what Macondo is all about sound-wise. Among all audio advantages that Macondo does sounicly I do have one sadistic experiment that I conduct with my visitors. I suggest them to lift from ground the Macondo upper bass horn. It is very funny to look at the eyes of those people who agreed. When they grab the mouth of a horn they are full of enthusiasm. However, this enthusiasm in thier eyes very rapidly change with surprise and then the typical “Holly cow!” drops from their lips…

Usually during this “horn lifting ceremony” I am smiling and my face is full with happiness. There are very few people who understand the REAL reason of that happiness of my, actually the is only one person who REALLY understands it. The real cause of my happiness is that I am VERY glad that I myself did NOT make those horns and the only person who really understands it is John Hasquin – the guy who made them. I do not know if Macondo horns are juts uncomfortable to lift but there is something in them that after you lift them once instantaneously turn you off to do it again. How the hell those horns were made only God know… and… John states that he made it alone.

A few weeks ago John sent me a few pictures of the Macondo’s upperbass while it was manufactured. I think it will be fun to post it in here…

The guy who was working for trucking company and who delivered the beast asked me if I install some kind of public emergency broadcast transmitter on my roof. After we brought the horn in I decided to play him another one that was already installed. The guy was so surprised that this heavy ugly monster can produced some intelegent sounds that I could help myself and snapped a picture of his reaction.

Macondo with Pussy Eyes.
fiogf49gjkf0d

I always pay attention to the references to my site. In particularly I curios when people out there making comments of judgment about Macondo.  In 99.99% of all cases that I have seen the remarks are idiotic, as it might be expected from the jury of not my peer. There are very seldom however some very interesting opinions.  A few days ago folks at Serbian audio site were taking about Macondo and one guy said that view of Macondo from a few years back in my old room:

...has a spooky appearance and he would be afraid to stays in that room as she would never know what would come out from those horns. He was right in way but others did not stop there and he modified my Macondo into something unspeakably beautiful.

You would not believe how much I like, no LOVE, the idea!!!
