about

The guitar was placed on a stand in proximity to the amplifiers. The angle of the two amps in relation to each other was 120 degrees, so the system of one guitar and two amps formed an obtuse triangle of 120/30/30.

VARIABLES:

Various distortion pedals. Snares on and off. Guitar tone knob and pickup switch. Position of human body in relation to loudspeaker system.

Vibrations could be felt throughout my body, in the walls, in drums and drumskins, in the speakers cabinets. Drums picked up significant sympathetic resonance, especially in the heads.

1 x 12” speaker - Fender Blues Junior III
4 x 10” speaker - Fender Hot Rod Deville 410
