i know! sounds FUN, doesn’t it!! well don’t get too excited. it’s really just French for “gapefruit”. but it is also the name of a collaboration of two individuals, Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn, who actually DO seem like a lot of fun! i think they might be from San Fransisco, but i am not sure (the only reason i guess that city is because they advertise having 2 shows in SF).
the most interesting thing about the music these two make is that they videotape making every sound used in the music they create. with this video, they collage it together and show every sound that they use, including voices and drums and other miscellaneous instruments they utilize. it’s as if they use the video as a beat machine and, well, it’s hard to explain i guess…
