Sunday June 3: No Man Band

Bio: No Man Band

The No Man Band (Doug Tielli) sings mostly Brititish Isles folk songs in falsetto through various objects that alter or filter the tone of the voice such as a teapot, a bottle, contact-miked neck as well as other surface, amplified instruments, bowls of water, etc. At the same time as the singing and often preceding, in between, and succeeding the singing, other sound sources are activated: small objects being dropped, feedback, styrofoam being flicked, scratching, dictaphones, radios, bottle-blowing, ... All performed with an attention to inadvertance, physicality, and tininess.
