BEG’D was a free improvisation quartet formed by Will Bertrand, Ian English, Rachel Gibson, and Andrew Dana. In their improvisations, they explored the use of “toy-like” instruments, including whirrlies, slide whistles, ocarinas, and a melodica. They also incorporated electronic elements by using a theremin, a MIDI guitar, and contact microphones. They also utilized hexagonal speakers to project their sounds in a non-traditional way.
