Donald Bousted is a composer, mixed media artist, guitarist and ukulele player.  His work is often based on intimate explorations of one or two instruments, sometimes with electronics.  In the work of the last 20 years, he has collaborated with visual artists and sought to integrate elements of film, still images and live art into his oeuvre.  He is perhaps best known for his microtonal music, which has been an interest since he was a student.  He has written music using quarter- and eighth-tones, just intonation, and a substantial body of work in 19-divison tuni n (19 pitches per octave).  You can find out more about Donald at www.donaldbousted.com

I would like to thank Donald for the commission of his newest instrument, a baritone ukulele from Red Sands Ukuleles. I have dreamed of having someone like Donald play in the style for which my instruments were designed. For that, I am very greatfull. Here are a few videos of Donald and his ukulele.
