Ah, the joys of working in audio retail mean that today I get to start my review session with this platter of confrontational and mostly percussive free-clattering on Experimedia from Ben Bennett, a jazz-trained drummer with a visceral playing style which is apparently best experienced live. On this record, though, we still get to hear plenty of frantic puttering and clanking and clattering in a variety of fast and frantic rhythms and slower more amorphous screech’n’scrape tomfoolery.

The list of instruments on the back of the cover reads as follows: “drums, frame drums, pre-tuned drumheads, mason jar ring with latex glove stretched across it, funnel with pop can bottom, camp cook set, sheet metal, wheelbarrow, sax mouthpiece with drumhead-reed, mouth bow, fishing line bow, sticks, brushes, tubes, bugle, the narrow part of a balloon, pizza cutter”. What a lot of instruments! It’s fair to say that this record could be a bit of an ordeal for those who struggle with harsh noise but it’s pretty fun in its own screechy, clattery way.
