Test Tone vol. 29: Toque (Kelly Churko + Tim Olive) / visuals by onnacodomo
Toque (Kelly Churko+Tim Olive)
The collaborative project between Canadian guitarists Kelly Churko and Tim Olive takes its name from a distinctive bit of headgear, worn pretty much all year in Canada. On the coldest days of winter, guitarists get together and play songs, and they generally sound nothing like what might arise from this meeting. Thwap, ping, whirr, crunch and other ungodly/beautiful sounds will likely be the hallmark of this mercurial improvising duo. From boiler room echoes to broken toys, everything you would never expect from a guitar, and more.

Not your usual VJ collective, onnacodomo use live digital camera feeds to present a series of happily random pictures, objects and hand puppets. The colours of their work burst into view like a visual scrapbook from Shinro Ohtake, or an action painting by Ushio Shinohara - for just a small taste, check out the video on their homepage.
