Gary Rouzer, objects, tapes, field recordings, cello

ŒMy musical collages often contain the sounds of domestic and city life. I
have used traffic, washing dishes, transformer hum, zippers, a can opener,
couch springs, cicadas, keyboard typing, a coffee machine, rain, distant
conversation, and furnace noises to name a few. My amplified objects are
everyday items, such as egg slicers, combs, paint brushes, cardboard, and
wooden boxes with contact mics attached. The only functions I use on the
computer are simple cut and paste editing, never effects or plug-ins.
Ex fan club. About a year ago I started using small cassette players in my
music. It first I was using just the sounds of the motors as amplified by a
contact mic attached to a cassette without tape. Later I started creating
tapes from recordings I had made of amplified objects and field recordings
to use in my live performances.  (Gary Rouzer, 2014)

Gary Rouzer(amplified objects, cello) was born in Washington DC and works in
the area between free improvisation and composition. He used to masquerade
as a bass player but now his Cageian preparations have taken on a life of
their own. His focus is on electro-acoustic sounds and the relation between
musician and listener within the performance space while exploring noise,
silence, texture, and abstract narrative. He is an active member of the DC
experiment music scene and has performed at Sonic Circuits, Electric
Possible, Fringe Festival, and Artomatic in addition performances in
Baltimore, NYC, Hamburg, and Berlin.

Gunnar Lettow, e-bass, electronics, objects, field recordings
Gregory Büttner, loudspeaker, a low sinus wave, fan, objects

Gunnar Lettow plays his electric bass using an assortment of different
preparations such as spears, clips, brushes along with the use of effects
units and field recordings. Gregory Büttner plays a loudspeaker cone fed
with a non-audible very low frequency sine wave and places different
resonating objects on the vibrating speaker membrane. In addition he plays
several objects from in everyday life on a computer fan, which he uses as a
rotating surface.

is the first release of the duo Gunnar Lettow / Gregory Büttner. The two
pieces were recorded on the 4th of June 2013 in Hamburg. While ŒOcherŒ is a
edit of a longer piece, the first one ŒGreyishŒ is untouched.
