The Bim Prongs - [excerpt]

Ever since washing up on our shores, Neal D. Retke (who performs as {AN} Eel) has been spreading joy and preaching the benefits of D.I.Y. co-operation. A busy member of the international home-taping circuit known for his many collaborative projects, this festival arose from a desire to bring together some of the different musicians he's encountered here so far, mixing together songs and noises over two days in the G.A.S.'s cozy east-end space.

Celebrating the occasion, William Davison brought some tapes of the event's host singing to warble in the background before looping some bristly sounds from a contact mic'd brush and other bricabrac from his collection of implements. Near the end of this extract, there's are some beautiful plinks from the metal tines of an egg slicer that then get whooshed into reverse.
