about

The Tingler is a duo comprising LYN GORDON and ASH WEDNESDAY.

The Tingler utilize a relatively modest, yet flexible recording set-up. The plan is to capture performance during the recording process and not to be hindered by technical considerations, nor evaluation of performance during performance.

In other words everything and anything is permitted and everything is recorded.

Song composition as well as performance is a 'here and now' process.


why?


'from past song-writing experiences, I have noted that at the best of times the respective words and melodies appear from nowhere (or at least one's subconciouss) during the song-writing process. These intangible moments of inspiration are indeed a divine experience, a vehicle for rising above the grey matter of day to day 'reality'. From that point on, the song merely becomes a monument to that moment of inspiration. Subsequently, as that song becomes more refined and arranged it generally loses touch with the initial sources that inspired it. Once the ultimate arrangement has been realized, I feel that the particular song has nowhere else to go, in fact, clinically dead.

Hence The Tingler's approach towards simultaneous composition and one take recording'.
