  Work Details  
  An electric guitar (fed into a fuzz and distortion box ) is de-tuned and re-tuned at high volume creating sustained and distorted feedback sounds. The strings are eventually de-tuned to the point where they dangle loosely and are then tightened by pulling them across the guitar pick-ups, so that the pick-ups become the bridge for the strings. This creates a very distorted feedback effect. The piece is improvised according to this plan. Gordon Monahan 1978-83 Accessed 02.07.2007 from http://www.gordonmonahan.com
