Here’s Animal Wigs’ full set at the fourth installment of Sonic Circuits: Off the Grid mini festival. The idea behind the event is that the participants are only allowed to perform with acoustic and/or battery operated instruments.
Animal Wigs consists of a rotating cast of musicians that improvise around loose compositional structures. This piece starts with some handheld electronic devices and a mellow drone, segues into an energetic percussion feature with delayed muted trumpet and then ends with a crescendo of gongs and feedback using battery powered amps and baby monitors.
