A dense collection of intricate close-miked small object improvisation, homemade instruments and slippery tape music wirr and skrong. All held together with a skilled sense of pace and humor.
While many of duo’s recordings revolve around collages of voice, Room Service sets aside the deadpan humor of some of their earlier works and gets down to an intense tape collaged funhouse of squeaking spring, resonating wine glass, clattering bric-a-brac and bowed whatsit.
Adam Bohman and Jonathan Bohman have been recording together since their early teens and playing live since 1984.
Their repertoire includes a combination of sounds created in the moment and distinct compositions including songs. They use unconventional instruments, household objects, dislocated text from found, literary and commercial sources and collaged layers of recordings.
