Speculum Fight, otherwise known as Damion Romero, deals with tones and frequencies that are very seductive to the listener. To achieve these soundscapes, Romero builds a variety of custom-made devices. These include microphones that look like small wooden boxes, and antique audio test-equipment re-wired as feedback generators. In one of his 1996 performances in Los Angeles, Romero would quietly sit in a chair. Between two very large speakers, he would be gently shaking what looked like a small flat wooden box with wires coming out. The resulting sound was both staggering and monumental. The contrast between how the sound was made and the characteristics of the sound itself was considerable. Considerable, yet typical for the likes of Speculum Fight.
