A special workshop as part of Full of Noises 4.5:
Benjamin D. Duvall of Liverpool-based experimental trio Ex-Easter Island Head presents a workshop exploring the groups’ unique approaches, techniques and preparations to the electric guitar and bass guitar through group demonstration and participation.
The session will cover the historical development of extended techniques and mechanical preparations for the electric guitar, and the development of the groups’ own music. Participants will be given a crash-course in preparing their own guitars.
The event lasts for approximately 60 minutes (plus time to set up). Participants should bring their own electric guitar, leads, tuner and a small practice amp.
DISCLAIMER: None of the preparations undertaken should result in damage to the instrument but it is recommended that participants don’t use instruments of significant monetary value or age in case of accidental damage.
