Elsewhere in the issue, we report from a research project in Bilbao on how alterations to an instrument’s back or top affects its sound; and on the evidence in favour of visualisation and otheralternative practice techniques in musical instrument learning. Jeff Bradetich talks about his career at the forefront of bass teaching and performance; and we hear from the creator of computer program which designs instrument forms based on François Denis’s Traité de Lutherie.
