exPRESSo, July 2000

Looking like a sprite who has just leapt from some highly energized fairy-tale, Natalia Paruz is zipping upstairs and downstairs in her Astoria apartment. Alternating between the four cats who have staunchly adhered to various surfaces of the rooms, she expertly maneuvers between the variety of recognizable--and unrecognizable--musical instruments which outnumber the apartment's furniture.

Clad in a T-shirt, black high-top sneakers and cargo shorts she appears nothing like one would expect a musical virtuoso whose talents have earned them rave reviews from a host of national media: "Natalia is a wonderful artist, absolutely!" Lynn Brown, Good Day New York, "There was also a musical saw number, soothingly performed by Natalia Paruz," The New York Times.

Though only in her late twenties Paruz's ability for expertly extricating ethereal sounds from the most corporeal of items, the musical saw, has earned her not only television, radio and film spots, but also increasing performances with various philharmonics.

However, though the majority of her focus is on the saw she is also skilled at a cavalcade of other admittedly "weird" instruments, and our meeting begins with a performance by her on the cow bells.

Leading me into the basement she perches behind a green velvet covered table upon which rest 36 different pitched Austrian cow bells. Organized in varying heights, some are nearly a foot high. Pressing the play button on a nearby tape recorder she swings her long ponytail out of the way then waits for her accompaniment, the sounds of her mother playing ragtime piano.

Meanwhile, I've been told to sit against the opposite wall, a good twenty feet from the bells. As Paruz puts ear plugs in her ears she explains, "You can't control the volume." Indeed.

As the tune begins she reaches over and lofts one of the bells over her head and rings it, than in the same movement replaces it and quickly grabs another. (Learning new pieces on the cow bells can be extremely difficult due to the intricate choreography required.)

As the tune picks up speed, the cheerful semi-cacophony resonates throughout my entire body, ringing not only in my ears but also my nerves, muscles, and individual cells--leaving me somehow giddily happy. Despite Paruz's speed, she moves with a dancer's confident strength, her form as precise and joyful as her expression; as each bell reaches its overhead zenith, her ponytail swings complimentarily and a huge grin breaks out on her face.

While orchestra bells, which are hung and rung with a mallet, have an angelic sound, cow bells have a "happier ring." But performers don¹t use cow bells as widely due to another quirk. "It's a vaudeville kind of thing, there's a degree of risk, they tend to fall over," Paruz explained .

The tradition of cow bells dates back to Roman times, when farmers attached bells to their cows not only to keep away predators, but also to identify cows in the dark due to the individual pitch of each bells' ring. However, there were also other unexpected developments.

 

Not only did farmers observe that the sounds seemed to soothe the cows and they increased their milk production, but also if the bell was removed, the cows became depressed, then sick.

After years of searching for further information on solo bell ringing, and finding none, Paruz decided to take matters into her own hands. She is currently working on a book of the subject and corresponding with experts throughout the world.

Born and raised in Israel she originally came to the states only for a short time--to study dance with the Martha Graham Dance company. But after meeting her husband, Scott, she fell in love and decided to remain.

Though her mother was a concert pianist "There was music when you were reading, eating, sleeping. . .," as a child Paruz wasn't interested in the musical field. "I tried the piano, guitar... but none of it stuck."

Instead it was trip to Austria six years ago when she first encountered a saw player that defined the following years of the "Vaudevillian in a past life."

Shortly after seeing the performance she purchased her own saw, returned to her hotel and tried to play "Happy Birthday."

Successful, she recalls she "Then decided to do a surprise thing for Scott and do a short segment of Mozart. [And] I thought, well ... if I can do this, I can do more."

Though she also plays the saw in the traditional folk manner, hitting it with a soft mallet, she prefers the more modern method pioneered in the early 1900's by a member of a Vaudevillian family, June Weaver. The technique uses a bow, which is used on the saw's blunt side, and creates an ethereal floating sound well worthy of classical compositions.

Her unique talent has taken her everywhere from the Utah Music festival where she performed for Mormons, "Mormon children have the longest attention span, playing for them was a pleasure," to an invitation to play at the re-opening of the Coney Island Freak Show. Notes Paruz enthusiastically, "I get to meet all these interesting, talented people. A lot of magicians, jugglers, and stilt walking bands.

"Whenever the phone rings, I try not to turn it down, whether it's for pay or not." However, her skill has also ushered her into the halls of famed philharmonic orchestras. Following her October "99 performance with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra with renowned conductor Maestro Zubin Mehta she will be appearing in December with the Westchester Philharmonic.

"Hopefully more orchestras will include [the saw]," says Paruz. "I hope so because more people seem to be taking it more seriously. The first reaction is 'What?!' then when they hear it they go, 'Ohh... I didn't know that was possible.'"

Smiling, she adds that the backing of a pro doesn't hurt, "If Zubin Mehta says that saw playing is cool, that really opens doors."

Also proficient at tap dancing, playing the piano, and singing (and doing all three at once) Paruz is currently learning the 'space control, etherwave theremin.'

Invented in the 1920's by a Russian inventor the machine is one of the first electronic instruments. Controlled by radio waves, sound is created by literally "playing air." Used widely on horror film soundtracks, Paruz adds that its creator fashioned its warbling echo after the sound of the musical saw.

When asked "Why?" her penchant for admittedly odd pursuits, she responds, "Because it puts a smile on people's faces. There's an old saying, 'Someone earns 10 cents. They spend 5 cents on a loaf of bread, and 5 cents on a flower. Someone else says, 'Why waste the 5 cents?' You need, not only something to live on, but also something to live for. "

The magicians, stilt walkers, jugglers [and saw players] are the flower."

SOUND BITES

• AN IN-TUNE READER WRITES: This past December, amidst multiple performances on NPR’s live radio show A Prairie Home Companion, Natalia Paruz, renowned Astoria artist (featured by QConf last week), was crowned the show’s official sawyer by Garrison Keillor, the show’s host since 1974.

To top it off, the Westchester Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by maestro Paul Dunkel, declared Natalia, who performed with them as the featured soloist this past December, an "acclaimed musician" and "master of the musical saw!"

Can we say: she came, she sawed, she conquered?

Times News Weekly
THE WEEK OF AUGUST 9, 2001

by Rob MacKay

The 16 saws that Natalia Paruz keeps in her Astoria home have never cut through wood—and they never will. These common home improvement tools are actually uncommon musical instruments that she uses to make out-of-this-world sounds. They are also the objects of an ancient art form that this tireless craftsperson is reviving—note after airy note.
Steadying the wider end between her knees and grasping the other end with her left hand, Paruz creates vibrations on her saws with a violin or cello bow held in her right hand. She then controls the vibrations’ pitches by bending the metal. (The number of octaves each saw contains depends on its length.)
Classically trained on piano, Paruz likes to play Mozart, Brahms and Shubert, but she’s just as comfortable doing show tunes, pop music, even “Happy Birthday” or “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” And equally important for places where her craft is unknown, she’s become quite adept at answering the whats, wheres and hows.
“I often have to explain what I’m doing to audiences while I’m performing, but they always end up liking it,” she said. “Saw-playing is a novelty, but it can be such beautiful music.”
In less than seven years, Paruz, who is 27, has sawed around the world, appearing on television shows such as Good Morning America, Regis & Kathy Lee and Oddville MTV and radio programs like NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion. She has worked with the Israel and Westchester philharmonic orchestras, made cuts for Volvo and Motorola commercials and even collaborated on some movie soundtracks. Closer to home, she’s a regular at events like the Astoria Park Concert Series and has performed in Central Park, Grand Central Station, South Street Seaport, Lincoln Center and even the Coney Island Freak Show.
This Sunday, August 12, she headlines an event at the P.S. 1—Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City.
Born in Israel, Paruz first came to New York in 1989 to be part of the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance and do some additional singing, tap dancing and acting. But while on vacation with her family in 1994, she was mesmerized by a saw player at a folklore show in Austria. She tracked down the musician afterward, and he begrudgingly gave her two tips: You can teach yourself; and the more expensive the saw, the better it will sound.
“He was right,” she said. “I learned by doing, and the thicker the metal, the better the vibration.”
When Paruz returned to Astoria, she immediately borrowed her landlady’s much-used saw and “found six different notes in it.” She then went to a local hardware store for her first purchase. “The owner got mad because he heard this singing in the aisle,” she recalled. “But I explained that I was there to buy. I found a saw with two octaves in it and bought it for $18.”
Paruz’s first saw performance was soon thereafter in front of a group of senior citizens at a Salvation Army community center on 46th Street and Broadway near the Woodside/Astoria border. Not only was she invited back, she soon was receiving offers from other centers throughout the city. Fast-forward to the present, and she now supports herself through her music. Said she proudly: “I don’t have to waitress anymore.”
Actually, Paruz does not live by sawing alone. She also plays 36 pitched Austrian cowbells, toy pianos, four-in-hand handbells, standard handbells and the theremin (a device which uses radio airwaves to make a warbling echo sound). She can also sing, play toy pianos and tap at the same time. Soon, she might add even more non-traditional instruments to her repertoire. “Everything has sounds,” she said. “I used to play a knife when I was younger. It sounded nice.”
There is some confusion surrounding the origins of saw-playing, but it is assumed to be as old as the carpentry tool itself. In the U.S., the musical saw reached its height of popularity during Vaudeville’s glory years and was even featured in the soundtrack for Swing Your Lady, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ronald Reagan. The music died almost completely during World War II, as all steel was used to make ammunition and many of its practitioners were drafted. Presently, it is popular in California and the Southeast, and there are large saw-playing associations in France, China and Japan.
But now it appears that this cherished art form is growing some Queens roots. And with Paruz’s dedication, it won’t play second-fiddle to anything. “Seeing the saw in Austria really changed by life, it opened up a whole new world,” she said. “Now I want to institutionalize it like the guitar or piano. It’s a genuine musical instrument, and eventually I would like it to be sold in music stores.”
Paruz will present a musical saw performance at P.S. 1–Contemporary Art Center on Sunday, August 12, at 4:15 p.m. as part of “Community Day Made In the Shade.” She will play classical and popular music and show tunes and will answer questions from the audience. Suggested donation: $5. P.S. 1 is located at 22-25 Jackson Avenue at 46th Avenue. For more information, call 784-2084 or surf to www.ps1.org. For more on Paruz, surf to www.sawlady.com.

Weak Economy Hurting Musicians
Posted on Friday, May 23 2003 @ 20:33:26 BST by tinfoil

Yahoo News is reporting that more and more musicians in New York (and the rest of the world I am sure) are having an increasingly tough time right now with jobs few and far between. Many have taken to playing on street corners and in subways. Veteran subway musician, Natalia Paruz, says 'And you have to be good so people rushing on their way will stop and listen.' The same goes for you musicians who have signed to record deals. Be original for crying outloud!

6.29.2004

As I got off a downtown #1 train at Times Square, 42nd Street, I walked up the stairs to hear a voice. Can it be that Lincoln Center comes to Times Square, or did a Broadway play decided to do a matineee underground?
It is the musical stylings of Natalia Paruz, the SawLady, who plays the "musical saw" that is making the angelic voice. This is not a saw that is used to build or go though wood. This saw pierces through the New York underground air and is a thousand times more pleasant to hear.
According to The SawLady, this instrument is one that has been in existance since ancient times. It has been brought to the forefont for about a century now and has been know to have made appearances in Hollywood.
The SawLady is offically a member of "Music Under New York" an Arts for transit program sponsored by the Metropolitan Transit Authority of New York (MTA). She helps out with the Annual Audition, where thousands compete for the "Music Under New York banner" permit to display. The permit is for life.
While conversing with The SawLady, a person every 5 minutes stopped by and asked her about her craft. Its so nice that people are open to learning about the saw.
The SawLady treated me to 2 performances. Honestly, I would not have known that is was a saw, not a voice if I didn't see it with my very own eyes.

The AAUW House Benefit of "Behind the Cathedral" & Fascinating Bell Symposium with A Playing of the Bells
Dr. Helen Yalof
AAUW Courier March 2005

Let's ring the bell for our unique Dance and Bell House Benefit event! Artistically, scholastically and financially it was definitely a resounding and "bellicious"-success. Every chair was taken! Over $530 was raised for the House Fund.

...With great elan, award-winning Natalia Paruz played musical cowbells. She is reviving old fashioned novelty musical art forms that were popular in Vaudeville. Natalia has performed with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, with PDQ Bach and with the Little Orchestra Society at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall; recorded on Capitol, Universal and Atlantic Records; and opened the official Liberty Bell ceremony in Philadelphia.

Between symposium speakers, Natalia played "Ragtime Nightingale" by Joseph Lamb on a set of 13 pitched European cowbells. She ended the symposium with the world premier of "Delancey Street Rag." The Rag was written by her husband Scott Munson for 25 pitched American cowbells and piano. Scott originally composed this theme when he was sixteen years old, and made a special arrangement of this lovely and fun piece for the AAUW benefit show. Natalia's extraordinary playing and showmanship galvanized the audience. The show and symposium ended amidst shouts of "Bravo!" and "Encore!"

In the Question and Answer period, Natalia explained more about her personal discovery of cowbells as musical instruments, and how to use them. The audience then gathered informally around the speakers and asked many more questions...

"the deli" NYC music magazine blog - Published on Wed, 7 Dec 2005

Those who came early to our party last night might have caught the performance of an amazing artist who can often be found playing her handy musical instrument (a saw!) in the NYC subways... Well, for some really alternative (literally underground) Christmas music, the Deli recommends Natalia's Paruz's "Hark! An Angel Sings" CD. In the end, even indie rockers have a tender core over the holidays... don't they?

Best Reason To Miss The N Train - Saw Lady
When you're stuck on a subway platform listening to some 22-year-old recent college grad (who probably grew up in Greenwich, Connecticut) abusing a guitar and trying to sing like Bob Dylan, you almost consider walking home. But when you're lucky enough to catch Natalia Paruz, a/k/a the Saw Lady, a gross-smelling Union Square station suddenly becomes more appealing than your living room. Paruz's warped and wonderful musical-saw performances are completely mesmerizing— there's something about the way the music swirls that makes you feel completely weightless and serene. Paruz puts so much feeling into the way she bends notes, whether she's playing Mozart or "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," and her sunny smile could soften the hardest heart. You can usually find her underground at Union Square, but she's been known to station-hop. (Ken Switzer)

Ukulelia: The World's Greatest Ukulele Weblog!

The Saw Lady...

It's a quite night in Ukuleletown. After 2am. The bars have all closed and the streets are slick from a recent rain. As I walk by an alley in the theater district, a plaintive, keeing sound fills the air; emanating from the stage door from one of the theaters.
I walk down the alley and poke my head in. There is a lovely woman with a saw and a bow making the most marvelous music.

Musical saw is an instrument that seems to go well with ukulele (yes, there is a ukulele connection!) More and more musicians are discovering it's joys. Bliss Blood from the Moonlighters, has played one for years. Joel Eckhaus, from Earnest Instruments, plays one. There's one in the Asylum Street Spankers, as well as the Hot Potato Syncopaters, to name just a few. The sound it produces seems to blend well with the sweet charm of the ukulele.

Natalia Paruz or The Saw Lady, as she is know, plays it better and knows more about it than anyone I've run across. Her website is a cornucopia of information on the instrument and her performances. There's even instruction and advice for beginners.

Get one, fill the air with wonder.
