Editorial Reviews

Trimpin: The Sound of Invention is an amusing exploration of the sonic world of an eccentric creative genius. Artist/inventor/engineer/composer Trimpin shuns the hype and hyperbole of the commercial art world - yet his freewheeling sculptures and outrageous musical experiments are cherished by museums all over the planet. Filmed over two years, this documentary feature follows the artist/inventor as he designs a 60-foot tower of more than 500 automatic electric guitars; builds an ensemble of huge marimbas that converts real-time earthquake data into music; and collaborates with the Kronos Quartet on an outrageous world premiere featuring toy instruments. Trimpin: The Sound of Invention will delight anyone interested in the mysteries, pitfalls, and sheer joy of creative experiment.

A nice documentary that traces the artist's work--both completed and in-progress. A few brief tedious moments that drag on due to the film maker's attempt to create a "mood" but otherwise an entertaining and educational video.

Was at the actual first showing of this documentary in Seattle. Wanted to have a copy. This was a chance of a lifetime. Trimpin is a fantastic artist and a wonderful person.

I'm using this book for my dissertation, I can understand why it'snot cheap, but it's worth it if you know what to expect from it. Don't buy it if you just want something to read in the bathroom, it's actually quite technical.
