Incorporating solid body electric guitars prepared in the manner of John Cage's pianos and alternately struck, scraped and bowed with bamboo sticks, percussion mallets and metal keys, alongside tapes, acoustic percussion and a variety of sound-making objects, Duo for TEF will be the groups' debut performance outside of Western Europe.
The piece will utilise hypnotic interlocking percussive patterns, carillon-like chimes and microtonal harmonies to create a unique sound world falling somewhere between the physical immediacy of the chamber ensemble and the alien textures of electronic music.

Ex-Easter Island Head
Ex-Easter Island Head are a Liverpool, UK based musical collective.
Incorporating multiple prepared electric guitars struck with percussion mallets and treated as an infinitely variable sound-source as well as drawing on an arsenal of cymbals, bells, prayer bowls and acoustic percussion, they devise works that explore group interplay, repetition and melodic invention through purposefully limited means.
They have performed solo, as a duo, three-piece, quartet and as a large ensemble across a wide variety of events. They will release new records in autumn 2013 from Low Point records (UK).
