ONE TAKE TRICK - Gary Eugene and Marian van der Zon
This is the first sound art collaboration between Gary Eugene and Marian van der Zon. It began with a whistle and sounds were subsequently added, taking turns, and only using one take to keep the creative process active and spontaneous. The work began to be written within the realm of musical experience, but
with a desire to extend beyond any musical confines or expectations. Remember the exercise of shared storytelling? It began with this as a motivation and continues, endlessly looped. Sounds include: bongo drums, voice in many manifestations, bass guitar, banjo, and manipulations.
