Avant-Garde Musical Duo Performs in Studio

The husband and wife musical team, "Clocked Out Duo," perform avant-garde percussion and prepared piano in studio and discuss their craft.

Avant-Garde Musical Duo Performs in Studio

Tom Fudge:   There's an obvious relationship between music and our environment, in that just about anything can be a musical instrument. A piano is just a box with wires that the player bangs on with a set of hammers. Finding new things to bang on is one way to describe the music of Clocked Out Duo . The duo is comprised of Vanessa Tomlinson and Erik Griswold, who are husband and wife. And their progressive percussive inventions have excited audiences all over the world. They performed at UCSD last night.
