Description

`Mallet Guitars One' is the debut release by Ex-Easter Island Head; a Liverpool based ensemble comprising for this record of three solid bodied electric guitars and two performers.

The record is three movements of shimmering drones, ghostly overtones and sustained consonances elicited through gradually changing rhythmic patterns played on the body of horizontally mounted guitars with percussion mallets. Utilising repetition, resonance and amplification, their sound is poised between minimalist austerity and sonic density.

Recorded live in the cavernous roof space of a listed neo-classical church, the minutiae of three fixed chords are magnified by the resonant architecture of the building. Creating an ever changing surface over an unmoving centre, overtones are amplified and different timbres generated by switching percussive patterns.
