hicksoncompactgroup / Bio

recordings of various homemade and conventional instruments.
recorded mostly randomly-always spontaneously.

basic effects (reverb, compressors/limiters, delays). all songs / tracks are kept as true to the original recordings as much as possible.

electric/baritone/hollow body guitars or steel/nylon string acoustic guitars.

homemade contact microphones attached to assorted objects (i.e. thumb piano, "spring boxes", cotton). Other items used include a Hurdy Gurdy, cigar-box banjos, shruti box, mandolin, ukeleles, dulcimers, steel drum, toy piano, just to name a few. I also use assorted wooden percussion instruments, a drumset, cymbals, and a nut-shell bracelet....with more to come

field recordings.

analog tape loops.

all imperfections, purely intentional.
