With Tegzes turning knobs to industrial effect and tweaking out bizarre elephant and donkey sounds from an electronically altered children's Sight-N-Sound book, Rodriguez picks up various obscure instruments, such as the saroj and wooden flute, while Matamoros, bow in hand, improvises on the saw. It's a cacophony of conflicting sounds but with each musician listening carefully to the other sounds to form an actual song. "I prefer playing with other musicians dramatically more than alone," says Tegzes of his noteless synth box. "Playing with yourself is masturbating."
