Make Ready Guitar Duos

Some initial sketches of a ‘form’ of prepared guitar (with added MIDI triggering of found sounds and various synthesis).

prepared guitar is a guitar that has had its timbre altered by placing various objects on or between the instrument’s strings, including other extended techniques. This practice is sometimes called tabletop guitar, because many prepared guitarists do not hold the instrument in the usual manner, but instead place the guitar on a table to manipulate it.

The method of actually preparing the guitar was developed in the late 1960s by Keith Rowe, in imitation of Jackson Pollock’s painting method and John Cage’s prepared piano. Rowe developed various prepared guitar techniques: placing the guitar flat on a table and manipulating the strings, body and pickups in unorthodox ways to produce sounds described as dark, brooding, compelling, expansive and alien. He has been known to employ objects such as a library card, rubber eraser, springs, hand-held electric fans, alligator clips, and common office supplies in playing the guitar.

From Drum To String (First Takes/Mixes)

A night’s improvisational parsing of conceptual technique…acting as ‘drummer’ on ebow guitar and prepared piano, and guitar technique mirrored then back to a percussive free-form  reciprocating electronic drum reply (in ‘duo form”).

These are rebuilds of pages from my former blog (at blogger), I will slowly be updating the accompanying info but for now all the track player links should be active for ‘Discover/Encounter’ sessions 🙂

120408 Duos

Again, playing in the ‘faux nostalgia’ realm of my early days of instruments, machines, and cassette recorders. The ‘scene’ is a small bedroom in 1979, amid the chaos of tolex-covered furniture-amplifiers and a carpet of cables and upon a leaky waterbed I sit with my newly acquired drum machine (varied per ‘fantasy’) and a cassette recorder (the portable kind with ‘built-in mic). This scenario does actually exist as recordings but I like this ‘simulcrum’ version better…rewriting personal history is today my laptop prerogative 🙂
