Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. GP (Graham Peter) Hall (born July 15, 1943, Hampton Hill, London, UK) is an English guitarist, composer and improviser fusing and mixing both traditional and avant-garde styles. He is also known for having invented the musical genre known as 'Industrial Sound Sculptures'. Hall's music draws on classical, rock, jazz, flamenco, folk and blues styles as well as free music, electronic noise and "found" instrumentation. He uses slide and fingerpicking techniques but also plays (or prepares) his guitars with various found implements such as crocodile clips, palette knives, velcro strips, an antique psaltery bow, wind-up toy cars and others in order to create a variety of different sounds and attacks. Hall uses a variety of treatments and electronic effects pedals to further process his guitar output, and sometimes incorporates radio broadcasts into his ensemble sound.show more
