Organballoon - [excerpt from first piece]

This longstanding, if infrequently performing, pairing between Justin Haynes and Ryan Driver plays "improvised spirituals for the majestic and the humble alike" and offers no more or less than its name. With Haynes on organ and Driver toot-blurting with a stretched balloon membrane, the music emerges like some manner of slightly-bent dirge. The squawky, almost kazoo-like like vocalisations emerge in Diver's falsetto range but distorted and muffled with a certain ornate ludicrousness.
