Black Friday Appliance, Live Performance at The Fidelitorium, Kernersville, North Carolina on August 29, 2016 Bryon Settle / Kirk Ross — prepared guitars
Recorded and mixed by Pete Weiss
This is part two of the full recording. The name for the piece is more obvious in the first section which starts with the sound of a Braun dishwasher purchased by Mitch Easter on Black Friday somewhere around 2014 or 2015 (year still being verified). Mitch said it was his only major Black Friday purchase.
Guitar materials include alligator clips, small metallic strips and two “found” kitchen tools from the Fidelitorium kitchen, a hand-cranked mixer and a vintage tomato slicer.
The narration and loon call in the early section of this part is from a mechanical disc player of North American Bird Songs (brand as yet unidentified).
