The Techniques
 
 

G P Hall has devised many of the techniques himself, his music is a mixture 
of Flamenco, Rock and Avant-Garde.
GP also draws inspiration from the more usual classical, jazz, and improvisation.

Flamenco patterns played on a 6-string bass, electric blues (industrial style), 
sound-scapes, classical, minimalist, and Industrial Sound Sculptures 
all form the basis of the rich, multi-layered sound that is unique to G P Hall.



Industrial Sound Sculptures

The phrase 'Industrial Sound Sculpture' is one that Hall coined over 
25 years ago and he is credited with the distinction 
of spear heading this particular sound.

Many reference books refer to Hall as the principle architect and
originator of this incredibly diverse and unique style of music.

"sound sculptures because I use stereo sound created by using 2 150 watt 
Carlsbro keyboard combo amps fitted with 300 watt Black Widow 
speakers in each cabinet + a Line 6 AX2 212 250 watt stereo combo.

I work with 3 different sets of digital delays. 
I create the volume required and layer the sound with 2 foot volume 
controls mixing the sounds I make (using the above implements), in real time,
layering the sounds one on top of the other, listening to what sound I have 
created/layered first with one digital spread, then layering another sound
on top of the sound already made. 
The sound is huge wide-screen and dramatic.
It would be like mixing two record decks together mixed with industrial 
noise, except I also have to create the music and sounds instantly, 
and mix it at the same time, its a organic, and living on the edge gut 
wrenching, emotional mix, that can leave the audience changed forever."



GP Explains:
"Industrial because I use household objects such as:

battery shavers  the sound of b52 bombers taking off in stereo
crocodile clips the sound of shimmering waves and frogs on a pond
Velcro lions roaring in digital panning spreads, left and right of the stage
battery fans thousands of locust landing on your face
palette knife trains crashing head on in a tunnel
metal spatula singing, spiral tuned sawmill choir
rubber tubes phased spinning air and whistles




Dictaphone, small radio, siren, police car sounds, psaltry bows
in fact anything that will vibrate the strings of the guitar to create the 
desired effect"G P Hall's has devised many of the techniques himself,
