Gates: turntable, blank etched records, mixing boards, sampling
Vaughn: no-input mixing boards, prepared guitar
Oilve: prepared guitar, found objects
An encounter never replicated again in aesthetic.
The singular meeting between BricoLodge site curators (here performing
on a turntable, mixing board & electric guitar) and prepared
tabletop guitarist Tim Olive, whom is a resident of Osaka, Japan
but has family in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan... These improvisations
all recorded in the afternoon of January 5, 2001, and they represent
a concentrated and intense exploration of controlled muscles contorted
and shaping around domestic technologies such as a record player
and a mixing board to extract a restrained flow of sound while two
prepared tabletop-sitting electric guitars were manipulated with
the utmost scrutiny and critical nature.
