W.A. Davison & Nilan Perera - [excerpt from first piece]

Nilan Perera led off the afternoon session with a workshop on the theory (and his practice) of playing prepared guitar; later on he'd give a practical demonstration in this joint set with William Davison, who had a table full of electronics and amplified objects. With chopsticks, swizzle sticks, metal lids and more — and no pedals or other electronics to extend his sounds — Perera generated a range of tones, from soothing to rather astringent. Both of these veteran musicians should be on the radar of anyone making experimental or "noise" music in this town, even if neither label encapsulates the range of work they each perform.
