There has been only one all-ski musical ensemble: the Ski-A-Delics.
Formed in Boston in 1988, Ski-A-Delics were Laura Burns, Patrick Donnelly, Ed Osborn, Jonathan Sahula and Greg Wildes. Each played a single ski strung with a piano wire, each amplified with a single Fender Rhodes pick-up.
Despite the economy of the instruments, the skis were capable of a wide tonal and dynamic range. The strings were bowed, scraped and plucked to create pops, cracks, chimes, creaks and tones that combine to produce music which is an unexpected sum of its parts.
