The album Etude Begone Badum presents works by composers Alvin Lucier (US), Marko Ciciliani (GER/CRO) and Michael Pisaro (US), linked together by Norwegian Lars Petter Hagen’s poetic, electroacoustic intermezzi. The works employ personal, experimental and conceptual approaches to sound production, suggesting the development of a "post-percussive" practice – the topic of Håkon Stene’s ongoing Artistic Research Project “Ceci n'est pas un tambour – developing the role of the multidisciplinary performer”. This development eschews traditional playing techniques, substituting an open-ended concept wherein any sound producing object may be played in any manner imaginable.
