Rotten Piece is a moniker sound artists Carol and Shaun Kelly adopted in 1991 for their experimental music project. Both have experience with traditional song structure as well as unconventional approaches. Their collaboration has turned out to be very fruitful. In 10 years the duo has produced 35 CDs, 10 videos and more than 50 cassettes. Live performances include installations, multimedia spectacles, performance art and audience participation. Venues have varied from galleries and art spaces (Luxus/Holland Ministry of Pop Culture/London, Csaw and Severed Image Gallery/Houston, TX) to raves, discos and punk clubs in US and Europe.
Both Kellys are self taught, their method is generally the dissection and re-assembly of found sounds, field recordings combined with prepared or homemade instruments, these include: stick cello, 2x4 guitar, photo theremin, bridge guitar and an amplified spring contraption. The end result is sometimes a hypnotic drone or a series of loops, sometimes a menacing nightmarish noisescape. The sound is constantly changing and evolving.
