Understanding the Technology – Steelpan Tuning

Trinidad and Tobago - Pan Trinbago Inc. will be hosting a seminar titled “Understanding the Technology – Pan Tuning “ at the Port of Spain City Hall Auditorium, Knox Street, Port of Spain, Trinidad, on Saturday 29th August 2009, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm

Presenters are Dr. Anthony Achong and Mr. Patrick Arnold.

Mr. Patrick Arnold

U.S. based Dr. Achong is one of Trinidad & Tobago’s pioneering pan scientists conducting research on the steelpan for over 25 years. He has also published extensively on the scientific aspects of the pan in local and international journals. His goal is to put the science and technology of the steelpan on firm ground. Dr. Achong is credited in working out a complete dynamical/acoustical theory for the notes on the steelpan. He has received two local patents from his work on pan.

Mr. Arnold, an experienced steelpan tuner who has worked extensively at home and abroad, is the other resource panelist.

The exercise is part of the on-going thrust to revolutionize the instrument.

Registration commences one hour before the scheduled start of the seminar.

Pan tuners, builders and makers are invited.
