Korm Plastics is proud to present the eleventh release in the Brombron series. Originally a co-production between Staalplaat and Extrapool, it is now hosted by co-curator Frans de Waard. In the year 2000 Frans de Waard and Extrapool started the Brombron project. Two or more musicians become artists in residence in Extrapool, an arts initiative in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, with a fully equipped sound recording studio. These artists can work in a certain amount of time on a collaborative project; a project they always wished to do, but didn't have the time or the equipment to realize. For this twetvth installment all the machines were switched off, microphones installed and duets for two acoustic guitars were recorded by Tetuzi Akiyama and Greg Malcolm. Improvising along the way, along set theme's as well as new ones, they have come up with the most unlikely release in the Brombron series thus far. Greg Malcolm has been around for ages performing unusual music in variety of contexts and combinations. His current obsession is solo simultaneously played multiple guitar performances. The result of this is releases such as Homesick for Nowhere (Corpus Hermeticum 2002), Swimming In It (Kraak 2005) and most recently Hung (Celebrate Psi Phenomenon 2006). Greg Malcolm has toured regularly and participated in numerous festivals including Belgium's Pauze Festival 2005, 'Densites Festival in France 2005, Full Pull festival in Sweden, Safe as Milk in Norway 2006. Tetuzi Akiyama plays the guitar with primitive and practical implications, by adding a desire of his own to the instrument's characteristic nature in minimal and straight method. He delicately and sometimes boldly controls the volume of the sound from micro to macro level, and tries to quantize his physical system.
