Musician Emily Hopkins transformed two of her harps into heavy metal monsters by routing their audio through the Nepenthes guitar effects pedal by Electrofoods. The distortion pedal adds insane amounts of fuzz, and when combined with other pedals, it only gets more bonkers, creating sounds straight out of Hell.
The harp’s heavenly sounds are typically associated with classical or ethereal fantasy music. But musician Maël Isaac proves rock and alternative are perfectly suited to the sit-down string instrument too. Listen up as he performs classics from David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Joy Division, The Pixies, The White Stripes, and more.
