Bob Bellerue's “Unhinged" is 85 minutes of physically heavy yet delicately executed amplified piano noise drone. Taken from two festival performances in 2017, the recordings capture the multidimensional articulation of the speaker systems used on and around the strings of a grand piano. Pickups and microphones are variously fed to small medium and large speakers to make feedback, which is combined to create cross-modulations that are petulant and unstable.
Quiet groaning drones build to massive low-end eruption, with cacophonous amplified clatter and deep raging waves of string resonance. Now available for the first time as a double-disc set.
