Machine Shop is a gong and electronics duo blazing new paths in sound and music. Karen draws otherworldly vibrations from her wall of gongs with an arsenal of implements, while Drew amplifies and augments the complex harmonics coaxed from this incredible metal with a passel of microphones, a couple of mixers, a computer, and a few choice analog effects pedals.
This arrangement brings the listener up close to the wall of gongs and beyond, offering an intimate sonic experience like no other.
