Visited Overflow in Mayfield, my favourite junk store and scored some great sonic props!!
The biggest spring I’ve ever seen!!
It would be 300mm diameter, 2 metres long…
& does laser klangs like a mofo!
(Its actually an auger eg for feeding grain into a silo, truck or trailer)
35mm platter from a projector
70mm platter from a projector!
A couple of very large, very resonant pots
A resonant tray, 2 egg cup springs and a big heavy old cowbell!
UPDATE: Me & my Dad went for drive on Sunday, and we managed to call past Overflow for a quick second visit… And guess what? I bought a second large spring/auger! I thought buying the first one was already nuts as it is so large it’s quite hard to fit in the car! But after playing with it a bit & thinking about its potential (bass shaker/contact mic effected loop with feedback) I just had to go back & get the second one…. They are both similar length – about 2 metres = 6.5 x 12″ vinyl/feet
a GIANT stereo spring reverb with cross feedback loops is in my future!
