Recorded way back (early '80s?) on open reel tape. The mumbly voices are from whatever was recorded on there before, as it was a former CBC Radio tape. The "instrument" is one of those little slicers for hard-boiled eggs. Submitted to Sound-In…

I support the CBC liberation front! Definitely a unique soundscape here! I wonder what you and Bill Newbold could come up with in a collaboration. It might be fun!

I work strictly in improvisation, on whatever sound-making device finds its way into my hands. Anything tuneful is usually accidental, though I do on rare occasions manage limited success when trying it deliberately. Electronics are a frequent component but there is also a fair amount of strictly acoustic material.
