Not For Pressure

This short sound performance for PVC pipe, microphone, and amplifier represents my attempt to craft a new musical instrument in a week’s time. Resonance from within the PVC pipe is picked up by a standard vocal mic and, depending on how both are positioned, variable waves of feedback occur. A delay pedal is included for additional atmospherics.

I thought it was interesting that the most prominent markings on the PVC indicate what the object is not intended for.
