This week I wrote “The Phantom Ship”, and finally gave in to the temptation to use an extended technique at the end to make ghostly sounds. I worried that it would be difficult to explain what to do. Fortunately, here is a beautiful website with video demonstrations. Wonderful! Harpist Gunnhildur Einarsdóttir has created this site explaining and demonstrating harp notation, and has given me permission to mention her site in the book.
Here is the page I will be referring to. I encourage you to look around this site. The harp notation examples and demonstrations are so helpful. Anyone who wants to compose for harp should add this to their bookmarks.
