PET THE TIGER
Pet the Tiger: David Samas (rare vocal technique and invent), Peter Bonos (explosives and brass), Pete smith & Ian Saxton (extended technique percussion)
Pet the Tiger is an improvised acoustic collective for invented instruments with David Samas (composer/inventor/extended technique vocals), Grace Renaud (keyboards and percussion), Ash Ritter (idiophones and aquatiphones), and Peter Bonos (horns and explosives). We explore new concepts in friction bowing and split pics, with a special interest in unusual multiphonics and interference patterns. We play a wide assortment of invented, found and re-purposed instruments in order to create landscapes and tell stories in sound.
