HOOKAHRMONIUM* (hookah + harmonium) is the name I’ve coined for the melodicas that Klimchak and Stuart Gerber are playing with the long tube extensions to the normal mouthpiece, allowing them to have a hand free to play another instrument at the same time. Why I’ve coined that name should be obvious from the photo I took at tonight’s “Summer of Drum” improv program. Hookahrmonium! You read it here (or on my Facebook page) first!
*Pronunciation: [ˈhu-̇-kər-ˈmō-nē-əm] or [ˈhu-̇-kär-ˈmō-nē-əm]
