The above selection contains a smattering of pieces constructed collaboratively betwixt Ensemble Pamplemousse and line upon line percussion.
These very many sounds were brought to life, processed, mixed, and transformed at UCSD, the internet, and originally at a now-defunct furniture store in south Austin in the heat of Summer 2018.
We miss you KC Grey Home Furnishings, your industrial fans were very kind to us.
