Alphorn in Westside II

An Alphorn "is a labrophone, consisting of a wooden natural horn of conical bore, having a wooden cup-shaped mouthpiece, used by mountain dwellers", as Wikipedia so aptly describes.

 

Well, the sounds here were not so traditional at all and very aetherical and mystical. This particular Alphorn was played by Mike Maurer, who was supported by Jan Trösch on his guitar. Their performance was perfectly supplemented by the modern and irregular architecture of the shopping center.
