Warrior Caste -- biography/about:
Warrior Caste is an occasional project defined as an electroacoustic collaboration between Eliot Bates and various solo musicians. Collaborations in the past have included Joseph Getter, clarinet and ocarina; James Smith, gamelan and disco organ; Peter Hadley, digeridoo, and Catherine Wright, vocals and bonang panerus. One long-standing collarboation with Oriental violinist Brad Wright became known as Intervals. In all cases, the collaboration involved live electronic treatment/ broadcast/ modification of the virtuosic soloist by Eliot Bates.
The goal of Warrior Caste has always been to create an interactive sound sculpture whereby the soloist can accompany themselves on their chosen insrument. Sounds they produce can become near-endless reverberation (feedback).
