Bertrand, English, Gibson, Dana
Performed in March 2018 in Fairchild Chapel, Oberlin
Originally formed for a class, beg’d (named after the last initial of each member) is a free improvisation ensemble consisting of four Oberlin conservatory students. The initial idea for this ensemble originated from a desire to explore extended techniques on toy instruments and household ornaments. This resulted in a spread of instruments including everything from melodicas and thunder tubes to large sheets of metal.
