Unusual music

Unusual music on an unusual instrument played by an unusual artist

The music wasn't unusual. It's a Nicoḷ Paganini (1782-1840) piece played primarily on a variation of a hammered dulcimer using cloth wrapped hard hammers (gives a sound somewhere bettween hard and soft hammers). Here is a link for how the piece sounds on a violin (the principle instrument it was written for) and guitar:

I also saw at least two other hammered dulcimers in that performance. Hammered dulcimers are fairly common (they are almost a staple at folkmusic and Renaissance festivals here in the U.S.) and have many variations. the principle dulcimer in the video had a damper pedal for damping the strings, much like a piano has, something I haven't seen before (which only means I haven't seen it before).

The performer, on the other hand, was extremely unusual, even with physical appearance notwithstanding. I loved watching his facial expressions! That was the best part of the performance!

I think the performer is a gipsy, but I am not certain. Here is his wife singing.

Odd distortion while playing music in any music player on Win 7 PC
I am not sure if the title accurately tells what my issue is. I hope I can explain it. When listening to music on my PC, it does not matter if I use Winamp, Songbird, Quicktime, Windows Media Player, or any other software. Every so often, there appears some sort of distortion, like the drive...
