Percussion Layers

I made this short, experimental, digital film last month, based on some percussion stuff I've been playing around with lately.

The Bim Prongs website

In my last post I mentioned the possibility of setting up a Bandcamp page for The Bim Prongs. I've decided, for the time being at least, not to use Bandcamp. It's a little too "commercial" for my liking. So, I've set up a small website and a Soundcloud profile for the project instead.

If you're interested in downloading The Bim Prongs debut release "Walking In Rhythm" you may do so from the Soundcloud profile (and printable artwork is here).

I think Soundcloud limits the number of downloads to something like 100. Not entirely sure about that, but if it turns out you are unable to download the track from Soundcloud, just shoot me an email  - davison (at) recordism (dot) com - and I'll hook you up.

This form of patronage is one way of ensuring the continuing availability of new work as I move towards making more of my work freely accessible on the internet.

The Bim Prongs

New project, new product, debut performance tomorrow night...The Bim Prongs at National Drone Day - Night Drones!


Saturday, May 9, 8pm at Polish Combatants Hall, 206 Beverley St., Toronto.

In observance of Weird Canada's National Drone Day:

Two piece experimental electronic project. Their work is an all-analog audio sludge consisting of layers of drone, noise, and ambient low frequencies.

An improvisational music/video collective centered around video and recording artist, Avery Strok. Featuring Jakob and Jacqueline from Moonwood and Kayla Milmine from Faster.

New experimental music project by veteran Canadian musician and artist W.A.Davison, known for his numerous solo projects (Songs of the New Erotics, Th W rbl r, Panic Engines, M.Stactor), and collaborations with key figures of the international experimental music scene (including members of Nurse With Wound, Nihilist Spasm Band, AMM, CCMC, MSBR,, etc.).

Solo drone guitar and electronic tones

Prolific improviser and experimental musician featured in the Weird Canada Weird 100. Bailey's self released LP, 'Dimensions', which chronicles his work from the 70's into the early 80's, is considered by Weird Canada, as one of the greatest Canadian classics of all time.

Visuals and installations by Avery Strok, Laura Dobson, Aziza Jaffer, lvithnn, and Kyle Duffield.



I will have copies of the new 3" CD "Walking In Rhythm" by The Bim Prongs for sale and trade at the show. I will also be putting up a Bandcamp page for digital downloads within the next week or so.

Hope to see you tomorrow night!

Panic Engines review

Somehow missed this mini-review of last year's Panic Engines set at National Drone Day, posted to the Mechanical Forest Sound blog:

My new project The Bim Prongs will be appearing in this year's Drone Day event as well. More on that in the next day or so.
