Peon, Melbourne's premier double-drummer festival of exploratory sound formed in 2009 to harvest the fertile ground between folktronica and performative sound art. All improvised, all the time; transcendental performances, hypnotic recordings - these guys can play but have solemnly sworn to use their powers for good.
This isn't music you've heard before.
Warmer, more intimate than their debut release, 'Intercourse Suite' invites you to listen repeatedly.
Timbre, texture, density and nuance are all playfully manipulated with hands/feet/breath, analogue FX and SuperCollider in service of the whole.
The form you hear is how it was intended and played - nothing added, nothing removed.
Listen and download the tracks gratis individually or spring for a buck and grab some extras that will make you the envy of your peer group.
Extras include: sexy gear / playing shots of the Intercourse Suite session, some Peon code to get you up and running on SuperCollider and a fab make-your-own-cover pdf to house a cd of your newly downloaded sounds.
