gate "Discomfort" full length CD is an experiment in solo improvisation on multiple instruments simultaneously. some of which are built especially for this or for similar projects. Instruments include electric four string instrument names 'sousen' with one low B bass string, 3 strings made of whatever metal wire available, and with an earth contact for clicks and buzzes, a converted radio, an electric morin khuur [mongolian string instrument played with a bow] and more conventionally an electric guitar and an electric 7 string bass. Instruments change per session. Furthermore between two and eight effects pedals are used- most importantly a delay for the sousen to create rhythms and a pitch shifter for the radio. All sessions are recorded as single track mp3 files and except for some fade in/fade out no changes are made in post production.
