David Cooper Orton - resonant domestic surfaces and appliances, kitchen `accoutrements' (eg: up-turned wok lid), wooden banisters and chairs, drum kit, computerised restructuring of these using Sonic Foundry Acid pH1
Michael Orton: drum kit, prepared drums, assorted percussive intercessions

Basically, Michael and I spent an afternoon wandering around our house at that time in Cornerswell Road, striking any immobile objects (resonant or otherwise) we encountered, until we had a fair number of sounds. I then recorded Michael playing some drum patterns, and edited-out some loops. We also did a sort of free form, Chris Cutler-style "waving sticks at the kit" duet which forms the last minute or so of the piece.
All of this was then sliced and diced in Acid pH1 on the family PC.
