U M U : bullclips, contact mics, 4-track cassette, analogue synth, turntable, found objects.
U M U is the ultra minimal mechanical electronics project of Daniel Beban. It’s based around simple spinning movements and crude analogue sound manipulation. Daniel Beban is a musician and sound artist from Wellington. He plays in Orchestra of Spheres, Sign of the Hag, Imbogodom, Slakes, Mantarays and other groups. He plays guitar and assorted objects, and makes instruments.
IRD is Christchurch’s Rory Dalley. His performances utilise junk noise and found sounds, music made with broken cassette recorders, unplugged mixers and collapsed drum kits, using few effects and abandoning many well-trodden psychedelic paths.
