The largest ceramic piece on display there, the "Nest of Hooters," looks, for all the world, like a whiskey still built by some character in a Dr. Seuss book. Welcome to ceramic sculptor/instrument maker Brian Ransom's world, one filled with "whistling pods," "hooters," "spiral horns" and "nutating vessels."

Brian Ransom marches to the hoot of some very different pots . . . and flutes and drums and horns of all descriptions. "I like really eccentric sounds, and I always have," Ransom says. His efforts to embody some of those sounds in ceramic vessels of visual as well as acoustical delight have led the 34-year-old musician/artist on a long journey--geographically and technically.

Brian Ransom makes music the hard way--he makes his instruments first. He designs and builds, from the ground up, all manner of clay flutes and whistles, drums and chimes, even his own baroque versions of a saxophone and fleugelhorn. Sunday evening, Ransom and his Ceramic Ensemble gave a free-wheeling, wide-ranging concert at the Couturier Gallery, near La Brea and Beverly, in conjunction with an exhibition there of his instruments.

There is a peculiarly American type of composer/performer, for whom the creation of music is a do-it-yourself affair from the ground up. Harry Partch and John Cage are patron saints of the musical tinkerers, whose on-going tradition is honorably represented locally by Brian Ransom and others. Tennessean Ellen Fullman, lately of Austin, Texas, is another in this lineage.
